GUI support for JMenu

Greetings from a newbie to JIDEA.
Can anyone tell me if there is any GUI support for adding JMenu to Forms? There must be a way, but no sign of it on the Palette, or at least I can't find it!
Best regards,

Hello doost,

Greetings from a newbie to JIDEA.

Can anyone tell me if there is any GUI support for adding JMenu to
Forms? There must be a way, but no sign of it on the Palette, or at
least I can't find it!


UI Designer currently supports designing only panels, not frames. Since a
menu is a property of a frame, designing menus is not currently supported.

Thank you Dmitry for the answer. So what work around do jIDEA developers use to overcome this?

Use the JFormDesigner plug-in (commercial) for IntelliJ IDEA ;)
It provides a full featured menu designer and is able to convert IntelliJ IDEA to JFormDesigner forms.

You could create the code for the menus yourself. It is no rocket-science.

Thank you all for your input. Before I start getting nasty messages I'd better close this thread! ;)
Lets hope for the day when IDEA and JFormDesigner will merge to provide a single product!

Hi Carl,

IMHO the right way to create menu items is to use actions. How is this
possible with JFormDesigner?
