New Wizard Tutorial for the NetBeans Platform
By Geertjan-Oracle on Mar 31, 2009
One of the great questions he asked was: "How do I localize the texts in a wizard?" And then I realized that, although various resources are available for creating wizards for NetBeans Platform applications, there isn't yet an official tutorial. So today I created it:
Note: If anyone is aware of any other resources that should be linked into the above tutorial, PLEASE let me know. It would be great if the above document were to become a central reference point for everything relating to wizards created for NetBeans Platform applications.
It definitely covers most of the common use cases and questions relating to the Wizard API classes. One big area is missing, relating to validation of user input in the wizard, although the reference to Tom's sample at the end of the tutorial should be sufficient until I add that section.
In an e-mail to me yesterday, Bartek writes: "I plan to write a Jabber chat plugin that integrates with NetBeans. It should be a very nice addition for team work." Definitely! That would also qualify you as a "NetBeans Platform Certified Engineer"!
