Hello cbasil,

No, GWT UI designer isn't implemented in IDEA.

Can you visually build gwt screens using Intellij Idea? That is, is
there something like this

But are there any plans to implement it?

Given there's not even a JSF designer I would imagine there are no plans for it. Moreover: given how gwt development works, and the kind of tools/libraries that are becoming available (such as gwt-ext) I doubt something really useful could be produced.

What IDEA should do right now is improve the current support by closing its functional gaps and smoothing the rough edges (these ones, precisely...: http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?reset=true&&pid=10132&resolution=-1&component=10751&sorter/field=issuekey&sorter/order=DESC&sorter/field=issuetype&sorter/order=DESC&sorter/field=priority&sorter/order=DESC ): developing in GWT in IDEA could be a much more pleasing experience (and I really don't feel the need for a visual designer).

Unfortunately development on the GWT support seems to happen mostly by leaps and bounds, and does not seem to be a very high priority in IDEA.
