I was wondering if it was possible to design
a background for JButton; that way I can use
it as a parameter to setBackground. Because I
want to design a metal look and place this as
backgroung rather than using the plain colours
eg black, red. And also I dont want to use setIcon
because I would like to place an Icon on top eg
an arrow for previous or next
Thank u for your time

Thank u so much for your time
Yesterday I went to this site http://www.izforge.com/izpack
and downloaded free software and I was really impressed with his
L & F . At first I thought he used a gif for his buttons ,but when I unzipped the jar there was no gif that matched his background for his buttons. Would someone have a minute to look at the programme? Is there a L& F which produces such an affect or is it something he customized himself.
Thanx s again

The following was taken from the creators source code. It is on your hard drive in the folder where you installed the program. This came from the file "installer.java".
