I've just started the long task of building a custom Look and feel. I was just wondering if anyone could give me a hand by pointing me to some good resources. I've already checked out Sun's Look and Feel resource, but it doesn't cover the subject in a enough detail. I've started simple with overriding BasicButtonUI, and I've overriden the rest of the UI classes... but I have no idea how to go about installing the LAF, anyways long story short, good resources would be a good thing.
Thanks

Hi shawn,
You can try the PLAF chapter of this excellent swing tutorial.
I've got other pointers on the subject but can't put the hand on them for the moment, I'll post them if I manage to find them again.
You can also have a look at skinlf source code (u can find it here), I think it could help you to figure how to do this.
good luck for yr l&f
