can anybody help?? Thanks
SWT uses native os calls to draw its widgets. So if the target os doesn't have rounded corners, you won't have them. You could use a widget without a border I supose and put an image of the button you want on it.
On the flip side, you can do whatever shaped widgets you want with Swing (to an extent) since it draws all its own widgets instead of relying on the os.
Not trying to suggest anything, that's just the way it is.
