Setting the SystemLookAndFeel under Windows XP. The JMenuBar text is still using the old Win2000 Highlighing during mouse rollover. The new look is a raised button. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Which JDK Version? 1.4.2 is the only one that actually has built in support for windows xp look and feel.
BTW - on my Windows XP box, all my Menu Bars (And I am talking about Native apps, not JAVA apps) the highlighting of menu items is not a raised button. It is a blue highlight. On the ToolBars it is a raised button.

You are correct in that MenuItems on the MenuBar are highlighted on some applications. But if you look at IE 6.x the menuitems on the menubar are raised and not highlighted. I am using JDK 1.4.2. Is there a different LookAndFeel other than SystemLookAndFeel? I am using SystemLookAndFeel.
Regards.

Version Note: As of release 1.4.2, WindowsLookAndFeel has been updated to mimic the Windows XP look and feel when running on the Windows XP platform. Java Tutorial

Not on my XP IE 6.0 machine. They are just highlighted.

Gregg Thanks for your input. I'll tryout the WindowsLookAndFeel and live with what is provided by either WindowsLookAndFeel or SystemLookAndFeel.
Greg.
