    NetBeans killed my form.

    I know this isn't exactly a Java-oriented board, but hopefully someone might have come accross this.

    I'm working on a program in the NetBeans IDE. I have a few components that I've created, and added to the design pallet.

    Today, I decided to reorganize my code a bit, and renamed the default package where most of my source is kept. After re-naming and refactoring the code, I opened up one of my forms, to discover that all of my compontents were "invalid". It gives me errors about loading the properties of the various components.

    I tried "reload form" in the source browser, but it doesn't work .

    Any suggestions? I really don't feel like starting over.

    Well, I decided to spam the internet a little, and a response on comp.lang.java.gui prompted me to try opening the NetBeans .form file. Luckily, the .form is in XML format, so I can manually change the class references in the forms to point to the new package names.

    You did a "safe" rename right (i.e. through NetBeans?)
