Hi,

I like the 3D look of JButtons in Java 5. However when change the foreground color using setForeground(), the 3D look of the Button is lost.

I'd like to have a Orange shade for my buttons instead of the default blue shade. How can I change it without losing the 3D look of the button.

Hi,

How come, ranchers are unable to solve a problem??

Is this impossible? If so, is there a work-around??

Thanx Jeff. Sorry for the delayed reply. I was a bit busy with exams.

By the way could you please explain it?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
