Have more control over dialogs

Postby raymanj » Sun Jan 30, 2005 6:40 am

It would be great if you could have more control over the aspects of dialogs. This would include properties such as, title bar (yes or none), modal or modeless, and show window widgets or not (close, minimize and maximize).

For the Mac users, it would be wonderful if we could set the dialog to be a sheet or not. I have always thought this was a wonderful feature of the Mac.

we don't have control over everything. For example not showing a title bar will also make it undraggable. (just like the splash screen)
We don't have real control over the close/minimize and maximize buttons in java)

For a mac we first have to check if this is possible in java to show it as a sheet.

So how would you hide the title bar if you are not concerned with it being draggable?

This is how you can do it with Java 6: http://www.davidpires.com/blog/archives ... -with-jdk6
This is how you can do it with Java pre 6 is described in the book 'Swing Hacks - Tips and Tools for Killer GUIs' (examples available for download)

You could use our Splash Plugin for that...
