    Default can't see the design button in NetBeans

    Hello,

    I have a zip file (project with files of an application I should analyze). I try to import the zip file in NetBeans IDE 7.4, but I get a message "No NetBeans project is added". So the project, i.e. the zip file, is not imported. Then I imported the files one by one choosing them from the zip file, just to be able to analyze the program. But the button design that should be besides the source button in NetBeans IDE doesn't appear. I can not see the design of the application, only the source code of the files.
    1. I don't know why the zip file doesn't import?
    2. why I there are only two buttons in NetBeans IDE, the source button and history button, but not the design button?
    Can anybody help me please?
    Thanks

    Read your own question back to yourself. Do you seriously think you give any kind of valid problem description here? Adjust your opinion keeping in mind that at least YOU can see what's going on in front of you; we can't.

    OK, I opened the project by opening the jar file, but the design button doesn't appear in the NetBeans IDE again.

    I don't use Netbeans, but I suspect that it decided that there's nothing to design given that bunch of files. If you have the source files, maybe you can create a proper Netbeans project with them ...

    kind regards,
