How To Install UI desinger

Hi, I have question regarding to the UIDesinger installation,

I have downloaded forms_rt.jar and default_palette.jar files and put them into %IDEAHOME%\plugins\uiDesinger\lib directory.

I don't know how to start the designer. If right clicked in tree view, selected "New", there wasn't any UI Form menu.

Please help how to install it, and what to download and where to put needed files.

Thanks a lot
Kristian

What do you mean by "downloaded".
That sounds like you are running IDEA 3.0.x.
I'm afraid you'll have to get the EAP version (with uiDesigner
already there).

Yes, I use IDEA 3.0.5,

it means that I cannot use uiDesigner with this version ?

That's right. The UI Designer is part of the Aurora EAP releases and relies
on functionality in the plugin API that just isn't present in the 3.0.x
series. The files that you downloaded are:

forms_rt.jar - the runtime class library which must accompany applications
that were created using the UI builder.

default-palette.jar - an add-on for the plugin which puts some additional
components on it's toolbar

Neither of those is the actual plugin which, AFAIK, cannot be downloaded on
its own.

Hope that helps,
Vil.
