Description

Improve look and feel of Swing and enable third parties to provide customized
implementations that don't depend on implementation assumptions. A l&f aware
layout manager is also desirable.

EVALUATION Name: ca25432 Date: 12/13/2001 This feature has been added for Tiger release ====================================================================== The new look, aka ocean, will be on by default. To get the old look either do -Dswing.metalTheme=steel, or programmaticaly do MetalLookAndFeel.setCurrentTheme(new DefaultMetalTheme()); UIManager.setLookAndFeel(new MetalLookAndFeel()); Contrary to my comments this resulted in a handful of API changes: Old look will be available with the system property swing.metalTheme=steel Revise spec of javax.swing.AbstractButton#getDisabledIcon from: /** * Returns the icon used by the button when it's disabled. * If no disabled icon has been set, the button constructs * one from the default icon. * <!-- PENDING(jeff): the disabled icon really should be created * (if necessary) by the L&F.--> * * @return the <code>disabledIcon</code> property * @see #getPressedIcon * @see #setDisabledIcon */ public Icon getDisabledIcon(); to: /** * Returns the icon used by the button when it's disabled. * If no disabled icon has been set this will forward the call to * the ui to construct an appropriate disabled Icon. * <p> * Some look and feels might not render the disabled Icon, in which * case they will ignore this. * * @return the <code>disabledIcon</code> property * @see #getPressedIcon * @see #setDisabledIcon * @see javax.swing.plaf.ButtonUI#getDisabledIcon */ public Icon getDisabledIcon(); Add the following new method to javax.swing.plaf.ButtonUI: /** * Returns the icon to display when the developer has not specified * a disabled icon. * <p> * Some look and feels might not render the disabled Icon, in which * case they will ignore this. * * @param button AbstractButton requesting the Icon * @return Disabled icon, or null. * @see javax.swing.AbstractButton#setIcon * @see javax.swing.AbstractButton#setDisabledIcon * @throws NullPointerException if <code>button</code> is null * @since 1.5 */ public Icon getDisabledIcon(AbstractButton button); Add the following two overriden methods to javax.swing.plaf.metal.MetalCombBoxUI: /** * If necessary paints the currently selected item. * * @param g Graphics to paint to * @param bounds Region to paint current value to * @param hasFocus whether or not the JComboBox has focus * @throws NullPointerException if any of the arguments are null. * @since 1.5 */ public void paintCurrentValue(Graphics g, Rectangle bounds, boolean hasFocus); /** * If necessary paints the background of the currently selected item. * * @param g Graphics to paint to * @param bounds Region to paint background to * @param hasFocus whether or not the JComboBox has focus * @throws NullPointerException if any of the arguments are null. * @since 1.5 */ public void paintCurrentValueBackground(Graphics g, Rectangle bounds, boolean hasFocus); Add the following two overriden methods to javax.swing.plaf.metal.MetalButtonUI: /** * If necessary paints the background of the component, then * invokes <code>paint</code>. * * @param g Graphics to paint to * @param c JComponent painting on * @throws NullPointerException if <code>g</code> or <code>c</code> is * null * @see javax.swing.plaf.ComponentUI#update * @see javax.swing.plaf.ComponentUI#paint * @since 1.5 */ public void update(Graphics g, JComponent c); /** * Returns the icon to display when the button is disabled. * * @param button AbstractButton requesting the Icon * @return Disabled icon, or null. * @see javax.swing.AbstractButton#setIcon * @see javax.swing.AbstractButton#setDisabledIcon * @throws NullPointerException if <code>button</code> is null * @since 1.5 */ public Icon getDisabledIcon(AbstractButton button); Create the class javax.swing.plaf.metal.MetalMenuBarUI: /** * Metal implementation of <code>MenuBarUI</code>.
