I wonder why I can't get the progress bar green like the XP theme. I create a frame with a new JProgressBar like this:
I also set the theme to the system theme (I'm running Windows XP, theme blue) like this:
JFrame frame = new JFrame();
JProgressBar progressBar = new JProgressBar(0, 100);
The new theme makes the progress bar blue (ugly ;P). Does anyone know how to get it green (like the blue XP theme)?
If someone don't understand what I mean, I can upload a picture of how it looks like and how I want it to be.
Thanks for your help!
What JDK? What OS are you on?
Like I said in my first post: "I'm running Windows XP, theme blue".
I have the latest (jdk1.6.0_06 & jre1.6.0_07)
what happens if you use setBackground(java.awt.Color) ?
You are not able to set the background color of a JProgressBar. Nothing happends.
I made a test and found out that the thing that does the progress bar blue is when I call the method setStringPainted(boolean) and set this to true. If this is false (default), the progress bar is green as I want...
My bad! Shame on me! Mod can remove this thread

Yeah, I know. My program is quite advanced and I thought I could write that part of code directly in this page... This is all my bad. I didn't bring those parts I thought was unnecessary, but they obviously was.
