I just wrote my first program using JFileChooser and the showSaveDialog
on a Windows PC using Vista.

How cheesy! It looks ancient. Is there a way to see the same file dialog screen
that you see with every other program on a Windows system?

You know, with color and the "modern" layout?

Thanks

Quite likely. Which look-and-feel did you choose when writing your code?

Use the UIManager you can set the look and feel of your program. Place this at the start of your program.

look-and-feel?

I just used:

JFileChooser fileSave = new JFileChooser();
fileSave.showSaveDialog(frame);
saveFile(filesave.getSelectedFile());

where saveFile is my own method.

What's this about look-and-feel? Something I'm missing?

Thanks

Thanks.

I suspect it's time for me to wander through this whole tutorial.

Gratefully,
