View Full Version : Creating CustomCodePanels with IntelliJ(2015) UI Designer

I'm trying to make a CustomCodePanel with IntelliJ 2015 and i'm facing a problem.

I followed this tutorial:

Here’s what I did:

1. I used the code template from the InstallAnywhere folder (IA_HOME\CustomCode\Templates\com\acme\CustomCodePanelTemplate.java)
2. I used IntelliJ uiDesigner to build a simple form (with Swing)
3. I built the JAR file with maven, the file holds only the compiled class file
4. I added a custom code panel to the InstallAnywhere project sequence (Add Action -> Panels -> Custom Code)
5. I imported the Custom Panel I made (I chose the JAR file)
6. I entered the Class of the Custom Panel
7. I added rt.jar (From the JRE\lib folder) to the Dependencies of the Custom Code Panel (because it holds javax.swing.*)
8. I built the installer & ran it

For some reason the Custom Panel I made doesn’t show-up in the new compiled installer..

Your documents are lacking a lot of information and are not really helping in achieving this.
Is there a more detailed tutorial / example / documentation that you can supply?

What is the FULL process in making a simple custom panel?
