Hi,

I have a swing application. The look and feel for that application is WINDOWS LOOK AND FEEL. I have a JButton in it. When i try to set the color for JButton using

JButton button = new JButton("OK");
button.setBackground(Color.GREEN);

But i am not getting the color in Button. Same code works if i just change the look and feel to defalt java look and feel.

Thanks that worked.. But this button alone looks some what different when compared to all other buttons in this panel...

This button looks like java look and feel

and all other button looks like windows look and feel...

Thanks a lot!! I learnt it today!! I posted one more query for JButton in Windows Look and Feel.. The prob is when i add mnemonic to a button I am not getting '_' below that particulat letter in the Button name. Is there any way to get the '_' in Button Name using windows look and feel.

if xp, the default for mnemonics is 'hidden' (I think)

control panel/display/appearance/effects
and uncheck 'Hide underlined letters......'
