Ok, I'm implementing JGoodies into my application since my target audience primarily uses windows and this will be less of a shock for them, but here's my question. In looking at the Fakeclipse demo from the www.jgoodies.com site, he demonstrates one particular feature I'd like to emulate in my final applcation. In each of his individual frames in the parent window, there is a "title block" - for lack of a better name - that I'd like to include.

Can anyone explain the concept of this? Is this a particular call in the api for a JPanel, because if there is I can't find it documented. If not, is it a clever trick with a disabled JSplitPane or just a north-bound jpanel? Any and all help appreciated.

Thanks,
David

Ok, I've been playing around a bit and I don't think I'm any closer. I've learned a few things about borders that I didn't know, but I'm still struggling trying to get a header or caption block on the top of my JPanel. I really like the Tasks panel that Karsten used in his Fakeclipse demo and I'm desperately trying to figure out how to emulate that.

Thanks
David

Ok, so I think I have that one licked, but I still have one MAJOR question....how the heck do I change the default styling for the JSplitPane dividers??? I really despise that bevel look and the only thing I've been able to change about them is the width. I don't see a documented method for changing the look anyplace.

Thanks,
David
