Hi all,
I'm working on an application (in Windows XP) which has a JToolBar that is always dark gray (and looks rather ugly). It has this color in both JDK 1.3 and 1.4. The buttons on the toolbar look all right in regards to their color, transparency (which is a light gray - the correct default color), but when compared to the toolbar, the contrast between the two different grays makes everything look ugly.
I had a co-worker try it on a Windows 2000 machine and everything looks great - no dark gray anywhere. Does anyone know what could be going wrong? Thanks...
Randy

I can relate...
I've also experienced a quirk running WinXP, where an awt Scrollbar slider would flash (alternate between normal color and darkGray). I have no idea why. It was repeatable (consistently) on the one WinXP machine, but would not occur running the same Applet on a Win2000 machine.
