got a couple of quick questions if anyone can help me out. I want a JTextField with rounded corners. My Thought was to subclass JTextField and override paintComponent and just draw a roundRectangle, yet when i do this, the textfield turns to nothing...any ideas?

And second question, if i wanted to make my own min and max and close buttons in my frame, what do I over ride to do so?

probably easier to frame.setUndecorated(true), then build your own button panel
and put it into BorderLayout.NORTH
