View Full Version : Cant get examples to work...

3 May 2008, 3:42 PM
Hello everyone,

I'm having problems getting any of the ext-gwt examples working.

For instance when I create a "TabPanelPage" and copy the source code from the example and try to execute it; GWT launches but all i get is a blank page.

A standard GWT example works fine.

I'm using eclipse with cypal plugin, GWT15M2, Eclipse Java Compiler set to 5.0 (also tried 6.0).

I've included <inherits name='com.extjs.gxt.ui.GXT'/> in the *.gwt.xml file. Also added <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/ext-all.css" /> to the *.html file.

I've added the gxt.jar to the build path.

My folder structure:

lib -

What am I doing wrong?

Not all the demo pages have been tested running standalone. In the case of TabPanelPage, try doing this:

public void onModuleLoad() {
setBounds(10, 10, 400, 300);

I having problems rebuilding samples.explorer project. I'm also using eclipse with cypal plugin, GWT15M2, Eclipse Java Compiler set to 5.0. I import the src after creating exploer by using cypal. I added build path for gxt.jar and tryed many others.
After your post, I try your way but still can not make it happen.
Could you ( or darrellmeyer) please give some detail or tutorial for this setup?
I have successfully recreate gwt-ext example's project.
Thanks in advance.

Hello budhimind,

Sorry for the late reply.

I have not tried setting up the actual explorer demo.

I created a new project, and copied the source from the "TabPanelPage" of the Explorer demo.

Initially it wasn't working but after I set the bounds as suggested by darrellmeyer it worked fine.

I recommend you trying to get a simple component to work first just to make sure your setup is fine i.e. just create a button.

Hi trx,
Thank you for your reply!

After read your post, I also did the same thing as you said, but it not working.
In "TabPanelPage", it will call TestData class in the "Resource" package. I do not know how to setup.

Could you please give me further hint on this?

Get rid of the references to the test data class and place an arbitary string instead i.e.


Should work.
