just want to know how elaboration you had on the look and feel, for example, font, color, and the button size, did you elaborate them to look fancy?
my problem is if I use default, the text color is always different with other text, and the OK button is not equal size with CANCEL button.
don't know why I am always entangled with such trivial details, how do you guys keep go ahead with such kind of things in one project?

Here's a link to Sun's wordy recommendation for look and feel:

I'd be afraid that Sun would take it as an insult if you didn't stick with the Java look and feel.

The size of the Cancel button should be different from the size of the OK button, and the text color of the label should be different form the text color of the text box. Incidentally, if you use defaults when creating your GUI controls, your basic control attributes (such as size, font color, borders, etc) will be set to Java Look & Feel Guidelines.

that means I have to set them for all the component I used? I readed the Java Look and Feel Guideline, but didn't find there is description on size, color etc.
by the way, how did you do it? did you set every component when create it?
thanks!
