Hi All , For my java based application I need round buttons .. Can anyone help me out and give me sugesstions on how to customise JButton to make it round ...as displayed in Visual Age for Java Thanks in Advance ... bhuvan
A quick and relatively easy solution might be to create a round image with the look you want for the button then create a JButton and an ImageIcon ( using the previously created image ). Then button.setIcon(imageIcon); //set the button to use the image button.setBorderPainted(false); //so you don't see the edges of the button Of course the drawback is that the background of image must match the background of the component you add the button to. I suppose there are other ways such as extending the JButton class but off the top of my head, I'm afraid I couldn't be much help in that approach. Hope this was some help.
