Hi all!
I want to build an app based on SwingX.
Stucked at adding JXFrame as main Frame in my sample app. Can anybody help me on this?
How can I add JXFrame in NetBeans GUI visual editor?

better ask in a Netbeans forum - not so many developers here use that. Would be nice if you post any answer you get here as well, for the next Netbeans dev to come along :-)

Damn ... this crap editor ...

Hi Jeanette!
So what do many developers use then?
In the netbeans forum the answer was - just start a project with standard Swing JFrame main class and then change "extends javax.swing.JFrame" to "extends org.jdesktop.swingx.JXFrame".

See http://forums.netbeans.org/topic32970.html
This does work OK with GUI design in Matisse, though not quite obvious...

BR,

I believe that most of the SwingX devs are using Eclipse.  I am.
