Chapter 21 - UI Designers

The IBXDesigner example shows how to add a designer within the Design tab for Java source files. It deals with components from the InternetBeans tab on the Component Palette (only available in the Enterprise editions of JBuilder).

PageProducers and IxComponents are added to the InternetBeans node in the Structure Pane with the latter beneath their corresponding producer. Activating the designer for one brings up the HTML page and locates the component within it.
