If you really want to do Swing/GUI programming, ditch the GUI builder and write the code yourself.

But to start out, you should probably be more specific about what you want. What makes a button look glossy like an iphone keypad? Is it a certain background color? A foreground color? Both? A border? There is no makeButtonLookLikeIphone() method in Java.

You might also want to investigate setting the program's look and feel.
