Table Cell Renderer

Hi,

I am trying to create a glossy effect on some table rows like the one seen in office communicator when one selects a contact. I am not sure how to approach it though.

Please help.

Sounds like you need to tweak the paint.
Take a look at Jon Lipsky's blog where he talks about creating iTunes like panel. Is this the same "gloss" effect you are talking about? If not can you please post a screen shot?

perhaps I didn't do it right. How should I add a snapshot. I only added an image using the images button on the "Post A Reply" page.

Use the "" option. It has an image tag.

I am not sure if it a different image tag or not. The insereted code looks the same. But i'll give it a try. Here it goes...

Nope. Cant see it. Maybe you better have a look at the blog I mentioned. It looks similar to some screenshots of the office communicator I saw here

Great idea

I am talking about the effect they have on the third screenshot where Rebecca Laszlo is selected. Though it really looks a lot sleeker in reality.
