Problem with custom look and feel implementation

I have a problem with my custom look and feel definition of the LabelUI component.

This is my custom LookAndFeel implementation class:


This is the LabelUI implementation class:


This is the main class that sets the components and the look and feel:


The problem is that I never seem to be entering the paintEnabledText() method of TestLabelUI, instead it still goes to the paintEnabledText() of the BasicLabelUI class. Although I instruct to go to the TestLabelUI in the TestLookAndFeel class...

Can anybody explain what I'm doing wrong?

Thnx!!

You need to call this method createUI, not createU.

Also, you probably want to call super.initClassDefaults(table) in initClassDefaults() before you call table.putDefaults(defaults).
