Usage of vaadin-widgets.jar
I would really like to use Vaadin widgets in a regular GWT application. I came across the vaadin-widgets.jar library, which I think is exactly what I need.
However, I saw the example for it, and it doesn't look exactly like regular Vaadin widgets. For example, the font doesn't seem to apply. Also, there only seem to be Grid built in.
I manually got the textbox and the native button working, by simply addinng the vaadin CSS classes ("v-widget v-textfield" and "v-widget v-nativebutton"). But it seems to me that there should be built in VaadinButton and VaadinTextBox classes that does this, right? Also, the non-native button wouldn't work this way, of course, since it uses a set of div's instead of the input-element. And as above, the fonts didn't look quite as expected.
Is there any information about what vaadin-widgets.jar will be and what it will not be? And if there is any roadmap, or something?
Thanks in advance!
Currently the vaadin-widgets ony contains the Grid, Escalator and VProgressBar. If you want to try out other Vaadin widgets in pure client-side case, you will need to include at least vaadin-client, which contains the rest. Some of the Vaadin widgets might not work out-of-the-box though.
