Is there any documentation available for the XML format used in the .form files?


Currently we provide *.form files as is. Work is in progress so there is
no documentation.

There will be an Ant task for form compilation.

By other words - it is will be possible soon to port this uidesigner plugin
to Ariadna for example?
Just implements GUI editor, and provide Ant task for compilation.

It's impossible to use UI designer plugin with Ariadna because it uses new
API for editors and new internal compiler/make API introduced in Aurora.
Why do you need it?

Anton,
I do not want to "move" UIdesigner to Ariadna, i want to create myouw editor
and use Ant task.
I want to move it to Ariadna becose it only stable IDEA for today. I believe
that Aurora come to stable soon, but how long it will be unstable..., i
don't know.
So, i wand to test, in any case, new features that you will addded to
Aurora. I think it not to hard port it to stable build ant test with it.

Thanks!

Of course you can try to do this. However I think it's tremendous amount of
work (and you risk to not finish it until release of Aurora when it will
become completely senseless :)).

I am trying to build a plugin that will generate source code from the .form file (I really like Idea and I like the GUI builder and want to use it, I just do not like the fact that it performs byte code manipulation instead of generating source code from the xml, so I decided to write a plugin). I have taken a look at the .form file and for the most part it seems staright forward, however I have noticed that JPanels are not identified with a component element as I would have expected. Instead, JPanels seem to be identified by the existance of an xy element that is not a child of a constraints element. I was asking for anydocumentation so I could confirm this and to see if there were any other things like that which I have not seen yet.

Hello,

xy tag stands for panel not converted to grid yet, and grid is a panel with
grid layout. Forms with xy panels should be treated as not completed ones,
so no code should be generated for such panels.

Why is not using absolute positioning? Why using JetBrains GridLayoutManager
instead of standard mechanizm of Swing layouting?

Do you think that absolute positioning is a way to lay components out?
GridLayoutManager is a quite stardard mechanism.
