    Default WindowBuilder Continua Internal Error ?

    I am running Eclipse Luna 4.4.2
    I am learning about Swing using the Eclipse WindowBuilder

    But whenever I do to the "Design View" once I make one to changes, I always get an error that pops up saying:
    Internal Error: WindowBuilder Encountered an Unexpected Internal Error

    Sometimes the error comes right away, sometimes after a few clicks. There seems to be no pattern as to what creates it.
    I have deleted the offending class, package, even project. Making a new project doesn't help the problem.
    The code always still runs (no error in the code) but WindowBuilder cannot recover once the error comes.

    I think I should reinstall WinderBuilder (at the least), but not sure how to "uninstall" or "repair" it. Or should I just delete all of Eclipse and start over? Since Eclipse isn't a regular installed application, I am not sure how that would work.
    Any tips for how to reinstall or repair windowbuilder?
    PS I tried posting this under the "Eclipse" subforum, but whenever I go to that page the website automatically logs me out; but I can pose in the subforum no problem..
    Thanks,
    Drew

    That's an oxymoron. Try the Oracle tutorial instead (omitting the second section... the NetBeans visual designer is no better than WindowBuilder as far as learning Swing is concerned).
    Trail: Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing (The Java™ Tutorials)

    Visual designers are categorically not beginners' tools. Experienced Swing programmers most often use them to throw together a design concept, then start again for the GUI for the actual application. FWIW, I have found learning Swing much easier, and also more rewarding, than fighting with a semi-automated process that most of the time generates code that looks like gibberish.
