win style resize rectangle when using metal plaf

Hi,

Is it possible to have a windows style resize rectangle shown when resizing windows using the metal plaf?

On the windows platform, when using the default (win) plaf, resizing a JFrame causes a transparent rectangle (with just a border) to be displayed. This rectangle denotes the new size of the JFrame. Now the space between the rectangle border and the original JFrame is transparent.

Now, on the same platform, if the metal plaf is used, the space between the borders and the original JFrame is filled with grey!

Does anyone know how I can get a transparent rectangle using a non-windows plaf? Going by the win plaf source, the rectangle seems to be handled by the underlying platform.

Any hints/leads on how this could be possibly achieved would be greatly appreciated...

Thanks in advance,

Regards,
Pramod
