I'm fairly new to commander so I have some basic questions I hopw someone can help me with. How do you put icons onto buttons in Kommander (like Swing components in Java)? Also how do you get a button to open another Kommander file (in the executor)? I'm having trouble working out how to link forms.

Hi Mark_667,

I guess you have either given up on kommander or resolved it yourself in the meantime. The kommander version I use is 1.2 (in KDE 3.5.4). I just found this thread searching for kommander stuff myself. To get it from the 0-reply list and give someone else searching for it a clue:

To put an icon on the just right-click on it and choose "Image".

To open another dialog from a button: Right-click on the button, choose "edit Kommander-Text" (should be third from above, sorry, German locale set here) and insert "@dialog(kmdr-03.kmdr)" -- substitute "kmdr-03.kmdr" with your dialog's file name. Give the absolute or relative path if it is not in the same directory as the one you want to start it from.

Kommander is not exactly a Java GUI development tool. It's meant for creating dynamic GUIs for non-programmers and might not fit into your idea as a regular "programming" GUI editor along the lines of qt-designer or Glade. It certainly has a different purpose, you can read more about it here:

Thanks for getting back to me with those responses, I've had another go at it since I got them and made some progress after neglecting it for some time. I was hoping to find a way of puttng a image (pixmap) and label on a button at the same time, but it seems you can't do that. Maybe a consideration for a future release? Until then putting an image on the button and a label underneath served my purposes quite well.
