Just wondering if anyone else has encountered problems with the New Netbeans V5 layout gui designer..

Specifically I've found a couple of times I've had to drop a dialog totally and start again due to the generated code not being generated correctly.

The problem occurs when I've been playing about with different looks, adding panels, adding things to panels, then deleting panels and so forth. I've found that the deleted panel object declarations ARE removed from the the code but the code that sets the properties of the deleted object is NOT being removed..

Its a bit disheartening as I downloaded the FINAL release of V5 last night so have been getting stuck into it today..

Yeah, I've had similar issues, especially when changing from the 3rd party layout managers to the built-in Java platform mananagers (GridBagLayout etc).

The GUI designer still has some issues, but in it's current form, I find it very useful.
