I created a calculator using swing under the netbeans. i want to see my buttons in different style ,but using the existing methods like border , icon etc i am not getting the good look , i need glossy look like iphone keypad . can any one suggests regarding is it possible using the ui components of netbeans.
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.
