As well as creating your composite, Jigloo will copy the jar and native libraries into your project. It copies all the native libraries, even though you generally will. CloudGarden’s tutorial on creating Java Swing GUI’s with Jigloo If a GUI class does not not open using Jigloo, i.e. you can only see the code and not the. Is there somewhere a Jigloo () tutorial for. SWT and Eclipse out there? The dokumentation is quite fine but I’d like.

You may want to use this property a lot and so move it to the “Basic” category. Let’s add a “GO” button to the top right of the form. Now, just to demonstrate the “Surround by” feature, right-click on the label and choose “Surround by container Now close the alignment helper and make the main form bigger because we will add more controls – notice that the addressCombo gets wider.

But how will the jig,oo appear in the first tutodial Then scroll down and open the “SelectionListener” node, and set “widgetSelected” to “inline” Jigloo will flip to the source code editor, at the place where the widgetSelected event handler has been inserted. If you wish to set a layout manager for a composite, select it from the “layout” palette and then click on the element you wish to apply it to, or right-click on the element and use the “Set Layout” options.

First click on the “Button” icon in the “Controls” palette and “drop” the button in the top-right corner of the form, using the alignment lines. You can do this by simply right-clicking on a property name and choosing the category you want from the list see below.

Then enter a name and initial text and an icon image if you like in the dialog that will appear. Now hit “OK” and close and re-open the Jigloo editor you need to do this to change to tabbed panels. Then add the following code to the event handler: Now add a “Status” CLabel to the bottom left of the form, an “About” Button called surprise aboutButton to the bottom-right of the form, a CLabel called statusLabel stretched along the bottom edge between the other label and the aboutButton, and then add a Browser control in the center of the form.


A quick way to run the main method of the class you just created is to click the “Run” button in the Outline view. Now click on the alignment button at the top-right of the addressCombo – an “alignment helper” should pop up see image Click on the right anchor button till the anchors look the same as in the image above.

You may need to re-adjust the position of the button after it is added to the form – Jigloo does a better job once it knows exactly how big the button is. Add event code to main composite.

Jigloo tutorial and examples

We will add code to the main composite’s aboutButton event handler, so go back to the main composite and add a SelectionListener. Choose “Appearance and Behaviour” and then “Tabbed panels”.

Edit the code to add dialogShell. Add a Button and CLabel as shown, and anchor them so the label stretches both ways and the button is anchored to the bottom-right.

The composite is created initially with a FormLayout manager, which allows you to position elements absolutely and relatively on the form and automatically resizes them as the form changes shape.

You can also drag it’s bottom edge to make it the same height as the goButton. Now, use the property editor to set the CLabel’s alignment to CENTER Since we are in the property editor, we should take a moment to look at property “categories” which organise properties into “Basic”, “Expert”, “Hidden” and any other category you might want to create. Then add a CCombo control to the tutlrial left of the form, call it addressCombo with initial value “www.


You can test whether your form behaves as expected when it is resized by clicking the “Preview” button in the outline view.

Anchor all controls so that the browser control expands in both directions and the statusLabel expands horizontally. This is useful when you want to maximize your design tuorial, but “Split-pane” can be useful if you want to see immediately the connection between code and GUI.

Now the addressCombo’s top, left and right edges are anchored fixed distances from the top, left and right edges of the form and tutorixl will expand horizontally if the form is resized.

Now we’ve got a Jigloo editor open, let’s change how it looks. Click on the “Open Jigloo preferences editor” button in the toolbar to the left of the Jigloo editor.

Then select the goButton and anchor it as shown in the image below, so that it stays fixed in the top right corner of the form and does not resize as the form is resized.

The Eclipse preferences window appears with Jigloo selected. It copies all the native libraries, even though you generally will not need them all, but you never know However, other layouts are useful for certain purposes – for example GridLayout is very useful for situations where your elements are layed out in a grid, with elements spanning multiple rows or columns.
