Google Web Toolkit

Palette Manager

  The Palette Manager may be accessed from the palette context menu.

The Palette Manager dialog allows the toolkit-specific palette to be fully configured. Categories and entries may be added, edited, rearranged and removed and JAR files imported.

Items may be rearranged using the Up and Down buttons or via drag and drop. The Collapse All and Expand All buttons show or hide all of the elements in the list.

Items may be hidden from the palette by unchecking the checkbox next to their category or component name.

 

Palette Manager Commands

Command

Description

Add Category... Create a new category to contain palette entries. The category may have a name, a description and an initial state of visible and/or opened by default. The category can be inserted before any existing category or inserted at the end of the list.

Add Entry >> Clicking the Add Entry >> button pops up the Add Entry menu.

Select the Component... command to create a new palette entry representing a user-specified component. The entry must have a name, class, and a description (visible as hover help in the palette). If the widget defines its own icon in its bean info, that icon will be used by default. The component may be initially visible or not and may be added to any available category.

Select the Single static factory... command to add a single component from a static factory. To add a single factory item, give it a name, select the factory class and method signature, and give it a description. The component may be initially visible or not and may be added to any available category.

Select the Several static factories... command to add a multiple components from a static factory. To add a multiple factory items at the same time, select the factory class and method signatures. The component name and description will be given default values. The components will be initially visible and may be added to any available category.

Select the Single instance factory... command to add a single component from an instance factory. To add a single factory item, give it a name, select the factory class and method signature, and give it a description. The component may be initially visible or not and may be added to any available category.

Select the Several instance factories... command to add a multiple components from an instance factory. To add a multiple factory items at the same time, select the factory class and method signatures. The component name and description will be given default values. The components will be initially visible and may be added to any available category.

Import Jar... Create multiple new palette entries using widget classes from a JAR file (selected from the classpath, workspace or from disk). Optionally create a new category to add the entries to. The category name defaults to the name of the JAR.

 

If no widgets appear when you select a jar file, this is usually an indication that the jar file does not provide a proper JavaBean manifest readable by Sun's JavaBean manifest reader. Please contact the jar provider for a correction. As long as the jar is on your project path, you should be able to add individual widgets to the palette manually by using the Add Entry >> command.

Edit... Edit the selected category or component.

Remove... Remove the selected category or entry.
Up Move the selected component upward in the list. Components may also be moved via drag/drop.
Down Move the selected component downward in the list. Components may also be moved via drag/drop.
Collapse All Collapse all of the components in the tree.
Expand All Expand all of the components in the tree.
