Hi all,
I'm trying to create a tristate checkbox. I want to change the displayed image on the third state, so the three states would be something like this:
Blank (First State)
Yes (Second State)
No (Third State)

I've seen many posts that use the setArmed, setPressed and setSelected methods of the ButtonModel, but that's not what I want. I need to change the painted image on the checkbox, but I can't seem to know where that's done.

Any Ideas?

I finally got it
I found some code on the java forums and I modified it to do what wanted.

It can be quite useful actually...

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
