Almost all of the IDEA UI components assume the presence of the entire IDEA
framework around them and are not designed to be used in standalone applications.

hi dmitry,

sorry, but you got me wrong. i do not want to use it standalone. because we are in the plugin development forum, i thought it was clear that i want to use these ui components inside my IDEA plugin.

i'm totally new to the plugin development and swing programming. i want to use as much IDEA components as possible.

best regards, leif

Use the tool window ContentManager:

Content content = ContentFactory.SERVICE.getInstance().createContent(component, title, true);

ToolWindow window = ToolWindowManager.getInstance(project).getToolWindow(WINDOW_ID);
ContentManager manager = window.getContentManager();

// adds tab   
manager.addContent(content);
