Post subject: Matisse .form file association  PostPosted: Nov 03, 2011 - 06:24 PM

I sent some files (including a .form) to a JDeveloper who tried to open it with IE. It wouldn't open. Trying to duplicate what he did, *I* opened the .form file with IE and just saw HTML.

The problem is, the file association for .form now seems stuck on IE. I've gone into Control Panel but don't know what to reassociate the .form file to to get it to open in MyEclipse. Any suggestions?

George,

Your issue is not clear to me. Please explain in detail -
1. What is the .form file you are referring to?
2. Where is it created JDeveloper / MyEclipse?
3. What is the MyEclipse version you are using? Open MyEclipse IDE, from menu options click on MyEclipse > Installation Summary > Installation Details and copy and paste the same here
4. In case you are referring to matisse .form file in MyEclipse, you see the html code as it contains the code for the design part. You need to also look for relevant .java file for the associated event handlers.

George,

A Matisse form consists of a .form file and a corresponding .java file. The form file, itself, is not useful on its own and isn't a file that is readable in IE or any web browser, as it is simply a descriptive XML file.

If you've tried to open the .form file outside of an IDE, then you've probably inadvertently set .form files to be opened by IE. This can be changed, for Windows, by right clicking on the file and selecting Open With->Choose Program... and then selecting the program and checking the box which says "Always use the selected program...". Alternatively, in Windows Explorer, choose Tools->Folder Options->File Types and then choose the form extension and select the program. However, this isn't the way to use MyEclipse, as the files are usually opened from within MyEclipse itself, where the file is part of a project you are developing.

I've responded to another post of yours, at http://www.myeclipseide.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&p=127741#127741. Please check that for more information on Matisse and GUI development tools in MyEclipse.
