How to Apply Synthetica Look And Feel to JFrame in Netbeans


Here I am going to explain how to apply Synthetica Look And Feel to a JFrame in Netbeans,in the previous tutorial I was explained how to apply Nimbus Look and Feel Java Swing to a JFrame.You will be able to apply

  • SyntheticaSkyMetallicLookAndFeel
  • SyntheticaBlueMoonLookAndFeel
  • SyntheticaBlueIceLookAndFeel
  • SyntheticaWhiteVisionLookAndFeel
  • and SystemLookAndFeel which will your OS look and feel.
To apply Synthetica look and feel you must add Synthetica libraries to your project class path.

This code will remove your current look and feel which will help to apply new look and feel clearly.

UIManager.removeAuxiliaryLookAndFeel(UIManager.getLookAndFeel());

To apply new look and feel you must use this code snip which will update all Component with new look and feel

SwingUtilities.updateComponentTreeUI(this);



Look and Feel change function


private void changeLookandFeel() {
        try {

            UIManager.removeAuxiliaryLookAndFeel(UIManager.getLookAndFeel());
            SyntheticaLookAndFeel.setWindowsDecorated(false);
            UIManager.setLookAndFeel(UIMANAGER_STRING);

//             for (int i = 0; i < LookAndFeel.getFrames().length; ++i) {
//                SwingUtilities.updateComponentTreeUI(LookAndFeel.getFrames()[i]);
//                SwingUtilities.updateComponentTreeUI(this);
//            }
            SwingUtilities.updateComponentTreeUI(this);

        } catch (Exception ex) {
            try {
                UIManager.setLookAndFeel(UIManager.getSystemLookAndFeelClassName());
            } catch (Exception e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
            }
        }
    }
