Can't seem to get the metal look and feel to antialias text. Anybody know how to do this?

Thanks!

  • What version of the JDK are you using?
  • And what platform are you using it on?

  • JDK6 inherits anti-aliasing from operating system settings. JDK 5 has a command line option to enable anti-aliasing: -Dswing.aatext=true. Anything else would probably require customizations to the look and feel.

    Have a MacBook Pro with latest op system and latest jre. The metal look and feel text looks so bad as to be unusable!
     
    Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
