Hi

I am experiencing a few problems with windowbuilder. I am trying to use the information from here http://code.google.com/javadevtools/wbpro/tipsandtricks.html Its not very specific on getting up and running however.

I am creating a new Java Project the creating a new interface class and then chosing open with window builder. However I continue to receive "this is not a GUI class" error.

Can anyone assits, or point in the direction of a more in depth guide to use?

creating a new interface class and then chosing open with window builder.

Disclaimer: I prefer to hand code and haven't used the window builder.
I doubt if you will be able to edit an interface with the window builder. Try creating a Composite or subclass a Widget and then editing with the window builder
