Hi All,

Building a desktop application in Java. Have number of forms. Each form has at least 15-20 tools(eg. Button, TextBox etc etc). I am using NetBeans IDE 6. I am dragging from the tool box. But It never get organised as I wanted it to be. When running the program it takes a different pattern. I have tried a lot. Is there any other freewares for better developments of Swing Screen? I would like to have a stylish swing builder. I have seen such Gui Builders for .NET and here is the link : Skin Crafter.
Please let me know how should I use NetBeans IDE 6 for building GUI. I have experience in Web development. Is this something like HTML coding. I think building forms in Visual Studio.Net is easier.

To start working on Netbeans use the following steps.

Create jFrame Form.
Right-Click on the form and make Layout as NULL via popup menu.
Now you can place your button or text etc etc as per your layout.


Right-Click form and go to property
Go to Code Tab.
Change form to Re-Size

Enjoy..................

Hello Anand,

Thanks for your response. I have made layout as Null via popup menu.

There are 3 attributes for Frame. Form Resize, Form Position, Form Resize policy.. where to change the resize code.

Thanks & Regards

GO to Code tab.
At Form Size Policy:
Make it to Generate Resize Code

Click onto form and Slightly change your form. You will see a change in "Form Size",the second option at Code Tab.

Enjoy...........
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
