    Smile Problem Working through Oracle's Swing/Netbeans Tutorial.

    Hello -

    I tried to work through the tutorial
    NetBeans IDE Basics (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Learning Swing with the NetBeans IDE)
    on using Swing with Netbeans.
    What's described looks nothing like what I see; for instance,
    my Netbeans does not have an Inspector window
    (Window > Navigating shows only Navigator).
    Anyway, I'm not able to complete the tutorial.
    I wonder if it's because I'm using jdk1.7 and
    not jdk 1.6 which is used in the tutorial.

    Thanks, fortunate to have this forum, Randy

    PS. Learning Netbeans has been my biggest problem,
    any suggestions (books, tutorials) in this regard would be appreciated.

    can you be more specific?
    why are you unable to complete the tutorial?

    i couldn't find the Inspector window when i was following a similar tutorial, but i found it wasn't neccessary.
    for example, you can rename a control by right clicking it + choosing Change Variable Name, or change a control's text by right clicking it + choosing Edit Text.

    Yes, thanks Paul that helps, the part about getting by without the Inspector window.
