Hi,
I wanted to modify the look and feel of some buttons on my Swing app using the swing.properties file.
However, i do not have the entire list of these properties. Can someone please direct me to where i can get a comprehensive list of all the properties that i can use in that file?

Is this not a question for our Swing forum?

Not much joy with this in SCJD, so off we go to the Swinger's party...

It may not be comprehensive, but I found this list via google.

don't know if this will help, the link will take you to a program that
displays all the UIManager defaults.

Good links. This is one of the (many) things that has always bothered me with Swing development. Sun, especially with Java6, really wants it to do well, however, they don't provide (a) good enough documentation for anything beyond trivial apps, and (b) any documentation on things like properties that Swing components use to manipulate and modify them which makes for better applications. And don't get me started on the available books for Swing.

Anyway, didn't mean to semi-hijack this thread. Nothing to see here. Move along, move along.
