lo all, i got a question, well really its a problem
its not with programming or anything like that its this...
im making a Jform and i was happerly adding components to it last night, well i was trying to arrange the windows in java sdk 1.4 (the netbeans part of it)
when i had rearranged the windows i found that my "components pallette" window had lost all the tabs and all the icons, i've tried everything i can think of to get it back, Reinstalling doesnt seem to work, hehe i even tried a System restore with win xp and still nothing

all im asking is this, is there a way of getting back all the components on the "components pallete" maybe a way to reset it somehow?
im not that familiar with the innner workings of java (although i got a great book that im learning, lol its big) For the moment a nice form design view is handy, to just drag and drop the stuff i want onto the form, but with the component pallatte completly empty, i cant add anything
if anyone knows how to reset the component pallette please can they give me a hand
thanks in advance

I think this is a question more on the NetBeans IDE than on Swing/JFC/AWT, so I'm moving this question to the IDEs forum.
