I have just started looking at developing a Swing app and found the 'substance' JAR and how it can change the LAF of an application. I have found a couple of sample app and coied their way of working, but whilst the sample apps appear to have then entire app skinned (titlebar, border etc) for me I only get the main window (panel) buttons, menus etc. The titlebar wtays in the traditional Windows look.
Here is the code of my Main.class that calls my app and skins it. It appears the same as the samples of the substance wewbsite, so I can't figure out why it's not working.
It's using substance.jar 5.3
Thanks in advance

isn't it always the case, that 1 minute after posting an issue you've had all day and you find the solution!!!
Adding these just after the UIManager line sorted it:-
subject: Swing substance not 'skinning' entire frame.
