|The Jigloo Swing Tutorial
Author: Robert Davis
|Thank you for the great tutorial. It not only helped me with Jigloo but it cleared up a LOT of questions I had about eclipse overall.
I had two problems with it. At the point where one has to make and accerlator for the About menu item
i.e "Add an accelerator for the "About" action".
The text says "Select the about action, and in the GUI Properties editor, select the "accelerator" property - it will be under the "Expert" node, but you might want to
move it to the "Basic" node, as above with the horizontalAlignment property. Then hold CTRL+SHIFT+A down and you should should see "ctrl shift A"
appear in the "accelerator" value." Well that does not happen. What does happen is that I get an eclipse dialog box with something that says"Open Plug-in Artifact"
I thin that CTRL+SHIFT+A is and hotkey combination for this dialog within eclipse. Is there something I need to do to avoid this and complete the tutorial?
Also when I press the build/run button in the outline panel, the tutorial frame apears but it is very small with only the java logo,minimize,maximize,and close icons showing. I can drag a corner to resize it and the file and help menu items appear but none of the buttons or panels. Can you tell me what I did wrong in this case.
