GUI Designer not Complete?

I found things in the GUI Designer that I didn't expect:
- No JToolBar, JProgressBar, or JPassword
- Trying to add components to panels built with the tool throws a NullPointer
- No Menu Bar editor

Is this right? Is it planned for the future?

Also it looks like the next version is almost ready minus some bug testing/fixes... :)

- No Menu Bar editor


JMenuBars only can be assigned to JFrames, IDEA's GUI designer handles
JPanels.

You can extend GUI designer palette. But for example is not possible to add buttons or separators to JToolBar...

Ok - that part verifies what I though.

So any ideas why I can use JPanels and add components to a JPanel from my code? I keep getting exceptions in the Intellij GridLayout object.

That works fine for me, are you sure your panels are correctly bound to fields?

I'll double check it. Thanks.
