Summary: Matisse: More comfortable layouting JSplitPane's divider location with drag and drop

Description daniel_l 2007-06-07 14:16:51 UTC
If I add components to a splitpane, the splitpane automatically resizes. But I
can't change the splipane's layout and divider's position with the Matisse GUI
Interface. I can't drag the splitbar/divider itself. The only way for layouting
splitpanes seems to be by changing the components' sizes in the property
inspector. Then I can see the result when I *run* the project, but *not* at
design time, i.e. in the Matisse view.

Reassigning to "form" evaluation...

Yes, it would be nice to be able to adjust the divider position via mouse directly. Need to find some trick for the
implementation since the GUI builder doesn't allow interacting with the designed components. For now you can try to
adjust the dividerLocation property.
