I dont think it is possible to do this without messing around with the ComponentUI.

However, if you set the which is the default behavior and add your own window listener, you can get notified when the user attempts to close the application window and process the event the way you want to.

You can use JWindow or JFrame.setUndecorated(true) - however, both of these options remove all frame decorations - titlebar, icon, minimize button, maximize button, and close button.

I'm too lazy to search for the thread(s) about this topic (but you certainly are welcome to, I think there's at least two with relevant code/discussion), but here's a bit of code I found that seems to work in L&Fs excluding the Windows L&F on XP; it removes all buttons on the title bar:



Call it with the frame you want to remove buttons on.

I would have to recommend Mr. Godbole's suggestion if you are planning to deploy an app on XP.

Please do a search through this forum; a similar subject came up about a year ago, with lots of code to show how it can be done.
