Resource editor functional?

Is the resource editor in LWUIT suppose to be functional? When I click on a
them in the left pane, everything disappears from the pane on the right. I
need to click on the image tab to see some content. Adding some values
does not populate the list at all, but adding the same element twice, for
example, the background image for a form causes the editor to complain that
the resource already exists and wants confirmation to replace it.

Hi Patrick,
yes the resource editor is very functional.

There are some issues with Java SE on Vista related to the Aero look
and feel (this is mentioned in the release notes briefly) which you
can avoid by changing the look and feel of the application from the
Aero default.

After switching a look and feel everything should be functional.

Thanks,
Shai.

You're correct, moving from aero does indeed fix it.

This handles my issue, but if you can indulge me for a second here, why
build this tool outside of the netbeans framework? Not necessarily a plugin
but using the Netbeans platform like VisualVM.

The main goal for the tool was to make it useful for the creative
staff in the development process.
Unlike CSS which is really only for developers we wanted a tool that
our designers could use without understanding too much about code.
This isn't perfect, they still need some help using the tool but they
are generally pretty pleased with the result when compared to other
tools in this field...

As part of that goal we didn't want NetBeans, we wanted a single
executable which we can send to the UI person without too much of a
fuss of installation/setup. NetBeans integration would be nice for
the future but since we have so much on our plate its somewhere at
the bottom of the pile.

Initially the tool was developed with JSR 296 but we had to dump that
right before release, due to "complexities unrelated to 296
itself"... So we didn't think we would need NetBeans RCP when we
started developing this and right now its a bit too late to switch
(and won't give us much of an advantage right now).

Thanks.

What OS are you using?
Is anything being written to the console?
Do you have the latest build?
