This is a simple question but i can't seem to figure it out.
For example i am using this code...
feel free to run this code...
When you run this you see the scrollbars with the Swing look (Bars look so nice)...
I am using this same type of code in my other project with JBuilder 7 and I am getting the plain look of the scrollbars.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated..

table.addMouseListener(new MouseAdapter() {

//Create the scroll pane and add the table to it.

The quick answer is that something that calls your code is setting the look and feel to something other than Swing (Metal). If you don't see Metal L&F only when running in JBuilder, then I would think that JBuilder was setting L&F to something else. If you don't see Metal L&F when calling this code through another class, somewhere in that class, or a class that called it, some class is setting the Look & Feel to something other than Metal...
