I created a Frame and then created the same thing with a JFrame. While I like the better handeling of the JFrame I thought the Frame had a better appearence on my machine (just running win95). How can I get a JFrame to have the same appearance has a Frame?

how can i make the rectangle look like a cylinder.
Just kidding........... , sorry couldn't resist.
I, personally would use Frame unless there are other
pressing demands, which in your case maybe true.

A frame all by itself is a pretty featureless thing. I admit not seeing a difference when I tested it on my machine.
If you refer to the components inside your frame, then maybe you can change the L&F (Look & Feel) to something different.
I can post some code to do this if you want.

I suppose I'll just play with it. I'm determined to use a JFrame soooo I'll beat it till it looks like I want it to. I'll have to take my code and run it on a different machine though and see if maybe it's just because I have a piece of junk at work...
