Has anyone else gotten a chance to use this thing ever?

If not, I highly suggest you do if you ever have to write GUI code by hand; because after struggling with GridBag and its sanatic constraints, I downloaded the libraries for this thing and what I needed was done in around half a minute its so obscenely simple to use.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I use it all the time, it's fantastic. Especially if you use it with Google Window Builder, it's even better.

I didn't know there was a window builder that could work with it.

How well does that work, and does it generate vomitous code? Or?

It works great in my opinion. I find the code to be very readable and easy to edit. It also makes it easy to make swing components instance variables, or put them back in the constructor. The code might be maybe 10% messier than if you wrote it by hand, but I find that for the amount of time it saves me it's totally worth it.

Wow holy crap, this things nice, it even reverse-reflects in the editor what i've changed in the code.


My mind is blown, immensely; this means that java doesn't have to have crappy GUI designer code...
