    Default Java GUI plug-in

    Hi everyone,

    Are there any plug-in's for Eclipse that are specifically designed to facilitate GUI implementation? I'm thinking of implementing Java GUI like Visual Basic.
    Manually locating and manipulating buttons and text boxes can be tedious.

    Thanks!

    I don't know of an addon for eclipse but you could download the nebeans IDE, that comes with a pretty good gui builder.

    Thanks. One of my friends just suggested "WindowBuilder" plug-in.

    Thread moved to Java IDEs

    I do not know your experience, but keep in mind it is good practice to know how to code user interfaces by hand...GUI builders are advanced tools meant for more advanced programmers - they abstract things away from the programmer in such a way that makes code reuseability, customization, and much more difficult without the proper foundation.
