GUI support for JMenu

Greetings from a newbie to JIDEA.

Can anyone tell me if there is any GUI support for adding JMenu to Forms? There must be a way, but no sign of it on the Palette, or at least I can't find it!

Best regards,

Doost

Hello doost,

 

Greetings from a newbie to JIDEA.

 

Can anyone tell me if there is any GUI support for adding JMenu to

Forms? There must be a way, but no sign of it on the Palette, or at

least I can't find it!

 

UI Designer currently supports designing only panels, not frames. Since a

menu is a property of a frame, designing menus is not currently supported.

Thank you Dmitry for the answer. So what work around do jIDEA developers use to overcome this?

 

Use the JFormDesigner plug-in (commercial) for IntelliJ IDEA

It provides a full featured menu designer and is able to convert IntelliJ IDEA to JFormDesigner forms.

and

Hi Carl,

 

IMHO the right way to create menu items is to use actions. How is this

possible with JFormDesigner?

You could create the code for the menus yourself. It is no rocket-science.
