When we want to change the UI default value,we use code like this : UIManager.put("Tree.background", new Color(32,33,220)); UIManager.put("Tree.textBackground", new Color(240,22,240)); But how can i know the other string value, like "Tree.background"? For example,when i want to change the scrollbar's color ,what to do and where i can find the whole info about those work? sorry , my english was very poor! Thanks!
You can call getDefaults() or getLookAndFeelDefaults() on UIManager() and then call keys() or keySet() on the returned UIDefaults object to get all the current keys you can set values for. Most are pretty self-explanatory, but I'd test them out to make sure the look and feel you are using uses them like you think, and make sure they aren't used in other places.
Write once, run anywhere, because there's nowhere to hide! - /. A.C.
I actually wrote a program/class to do this - allows you to see the current values visually. It's not totally done, but if anyone wants to see it, I can post what I have so far. I have some cool ideas for it just haven't gotten around to adding them. Brian [ March 18, 2004: Message edited by: Brian Pipa ]
