Post MigLayout Verifier for IntelliJ plug-in
MigLayout Verifier for IntelliJ plug-in - created by Kevin Peck

Now you can verify all your MigLayout row, column, component and layout constraints in the IntelliJ IDE without even running your program. Never see an exception again from a mistyped constraint string at run time. Find all issues in your layout instead of one at a time.

Download the plug-in jar file and create two new directories under you IntelliJ installation.

Example installation directory:

C:\Program Files\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition 9.0.3\plugins\

Add the directories MigVerifier\lib so you have the following path:

C:\Program Files\JetBrains\IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition 9.0.3\plugins\MigVerifier\lib

Copy the MigVerifier.JAR into the newly created lib directory.

Restart IntelliJ if it is already running or start it now. The plug-in will be picked up automatically. You can tell it is running by looking under the main Code menu, the last item should be "Verify MigLayout Alt+Shift+Y"

Simple select the text in you Java code that uses MigLayout and press Alt+Shift+Y or select the menu item to verify it. You will see the MigLayout Verification Console with any issues it found in the code. If issues have been found you can click on the Error:({row},{col})) hyperlinks to jump right to the code with the issue.
The plug-in uses the MigLayout parsing engine so you get the exact same errors you would get at run time but without the hassle of building your code, running it and navigating to the panel using the new code. Now you will know your constraints are accurate before you have ever run the code saving valuable time.
