Hi all

I am using Netbeans 6.5 in Windows XP,
While designing the forms the forms look and feel is windows look and feel. I want to know we can configure the Look and feel while designing it self.

because if i apply and other look and feel the size of the components need to be change. so if i see the final look and feel while designing the form its easy.

What do you mean by "the forms" - web pages or a Swing GUI? If the latter, note that the available LAFs differ depending on the platform. E.g., on Unix/Linux you can use a Motif LAF or a KDE LAF, while on OS X there's an Aqua LAF. There are also a couple of LAFs that can be used on all platforms - Metal and Ocean.
