    Thumbs down NetBeans - JFrame Form doesnt let me add components by myself

    NetBeans - JFrame Form doesnt let me add components by myself-capturada.jpg Why is this happening ? When i create a JFrame Form in NetBeans the background is Gray, and i cant add components typing the code by myself, just letting me drag them with the designer, when i make the Frame making a class and extending JFrame, the background is white , and i do can add components by myself, im so dissapointed about netBeans for this, i used to code with Eclipse and that didnt happen, but i think i did it before in netBeans :s , or maybe this is the normal way in netBeans ? please help

    Thread moved. Whatever made you think this question has anything at all to do with SWT / JFace?

    Default Re: NetBeans - JFrame Form doesnt let me add components by myself

    When you ask Netbeans to set up a project using the GUI builder then Netbeans will not allow you to start adding GUI components outside of that, for the simple reason that the builder will not understand what you've done.

    In general we recommend not using the GUI builder for just this reason. It's good for proof of concept, and fairly standard GUIs, but not so good for anything that requires a good degree of customisation.

    So don't blame Netbeans, blame your lack of understanding about what it is you are asking the tool to do.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.
