Defining Panel for an Element

Each element in the configuration file is associated to a panel for editing the attributes for that element. The mapping of the element to panel is done in the file that can be found in the resources sub-directory. The key is the name of the element and the value is the fully qualified name of the panel.

Properties Example


Element panels are in the net.sourceforge.cruisecontrol.ui.panels package.The easiest way to create a panel is to subclass net.sourceforge.cruisecontrol.gui.panels.common.BaseElementPanel. Then override the addComponents() method, add a field using the addFieldFor() method for each attribute of the element.

Panel Example

package net.sourceforge.cruisecontrol.gui.panels;

import net.sourceforge.cruisecontrol.gui.panels.common.BaseElementPanel;

 * @author alwick
public class AccurevPanel extends BaseElementPanel implements EditorPanel {

	public void addComponents() {
		addFieldFor( "stream", "Accurev Stream", TEXT_FIELD_TYPE );
		addFieldFor( "verbose", "Verbose", CHECKBOX_FIELD_TYPE );
	public String getTitle() {
		return "Accurev Element";

Compound Panels

Compound panels are used for elements that have sub-elements. These panels may also include other element panels as well as list of sub-elements.
