that was really helpful, Craig, ty!

from what i understand one has to use the button, not the panel that supports it, to add it to the various panels one wants it to be added to

one note: i'm using eclipse (and null layout for the main panels):
on the JavaBeans panel (when one uses the visual editor), the button appears with a white cross with red background, and more, does not show in visual editor pane (i mean, inside my app, near my lists, buttons and so on)
is there a way to fix it?

I agree. Here's the link:
