188.8.131.52 Beans Palette
The AdventNet Bean Builder User Interface provides various beans, which can be used in the applications built in it. The Component palette shows the collection of jars, with each jar containing a group of beans, so that the user can simply drag and drop the various components to suit his requirements.
The Component Palette is the visual interface for the user to select and use a bean ,be it user defined or pre-defined. It is present just below the Menu Bar. In the Component Palette, each tab represents a Jar of Bean components and the icons under each tab header represents the set of Bean components corresponding to the respective jar.
You can select the required bean by clicking on the appropriate icon and then drop it either in the Draw Area or in the invisible bean area. You can also cancel the selection by clicking on the "Cancel " button.
The Scroll buttons on the left and right side are used to move within the Component Palette to have a view of all the jars present in it, while the Scroll Button present for each tab (the inner set of Scroll Buttons) can be used to have a view of all the beans within the same tab whenever necessary.
The last tab of the Component Palette is "Project Classes". It consists the list of classnames of all the screens and files in the current project that has been loaded. One main feature is that we can drop those screens as beans in the new screen you design. Also classes available outside Bean Builder can be imported into the project using the browse button and used as beans. The below picture shows the "Project Classes" tab of the Component Palette.
