JFormDesigner™ is a professional GUI designer for Java™ Swing user interfaces. Its outstanding support for JGoodies FormLayout, GroupLayout (Free Design), TableLayout and GridBagLayout makes it easy to create professional looking forms.

FormDesigner makes Swing GUI design a real pleasure. It decreases the time you spend on hand coding forms, giving you more time to focus on the real tasks.

You'll find that JFormDesigner quickly pays back its cost in improved GUI quality and increased developer productivity.


Easy and intuitive to use, powerful and productive
JFormDesigner provides an easy-to-use but powerful user interface. Even non-programmers can use it, which makes it also ideal for prototyping.

IDE plug-ins and stand-alone application
JFormDesigner is available as IDE plug-ins for Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA and JBuilder and as stand-alone application. Plug-ins for NetBeans and JDeveloper are under development.

GroupLayout support
brings the "Free Design" paradigm to JFormDesigner (as in NetBeans GUI Builder; formerly Project Matisse). You can lay out your forms by simply placing components where you want them. This makes it easy to design professional-looking GUIs.

JGoodies FormLayout and Clearthought's TableLayout support
These well-known open-source layout managers allow you to design high quality forms. JFormDesigner provides excellent support for them.

Advanced GridBagLayout support
allows the specification of horizontal and vertical gaps (as in TableLayout). This makes it very easy to design forms with consistent gaps using GridBagLayout. No longer wrestling with GridBagConstraints.insets.

Column and row headers
(for grid-based layout managers) show the structure of the layout and allow you to insert or delete columns/rows and change column/row properties. It's also possible to drag and drop columns/rows (incl. contained components and gaps). This allows you to swap columns or move rows in seconds.

Localization support
Localizing forms using properties files has never been easier. Specify a resource bundle name and a prefix for keys when creating a new form and then forget about it. JFormDesigner automatically puts all strings into the specified resource bundle (auto-externalizing).
