Nimbus L&F makes Menus look wrong

Postby Ruben.Hesselbaek » Mon Mar 19, 2012 2:56 am

Using JDK 1.6.0_25 and the Nimbus L&F I am getting menus with no spacing, here is a small sample that will show the problem

Code: Select all
import javax.swing.JMenu;
import javax.swing.JMenuBar;
import javax.swing.UIManager;
import javax.swing.UIManager.LookAndFeelInfo;
import javax.swing.UnsupportedLookAndFeelException;

import com.jidesoft.docking.DefaultDockableHolder;

public class LookAndFeelTest extends DefaultDockableHolder {
 
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    try {
      for (LookAndFeelInfo info : UIManager.getInstalledLookAndFeels()) {
        if ("Nimbus".equals(info.getName())) {
          UIManager.setLookAndFeel(info.getClassName());
          break;
        }
      }
    } catch (UnsupportedLookAndFeelException e) {
      // handle exception
    } catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
      // handle exception
    } catch (InstantiationException e) {
      // handle exception
    } catch (IllegalAccessException e) {
      // handle exception
    }
    new LookAndFeelTest();
  }

  public LookAndFeelTest() {
    super("Test");
    setSize(640, 480);
    JMenuBar menuBar = new JMenuBar();
    menuBar.add(new JMenu("File"));
    menuBar.add(new JMenu("Help"));
    setJMenuBar(menuBar);
    menuBar.revalidate();
    menuBar.repaint();
    setVisible(true);
  }
}

Please try to install JIDE extension without menu. The modified test case is posted below FYI.
Code: Select all
import javax.swing.JMenu;
import javax.swing.JMenuBar;
import javax.swing.UIManager;
import javax.swing.UIManager.LookAndFeelInfo;
import javax.swing.UnsupportedLookAndFeelException;

import com.jidesoft.docking.DefaultDockableHolder;
import com.jidesoft.plaf.LookAndFeelFactory;

public class LookAndFeelTest extends DefaultDockableHolder {

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    try {
      for (LookAndFeelInfo info : UIManager.getInstalledLookAndFeels()) {
        if ("Nimbus".equals(info.getName())) {
          UIManager.setLookAndFeel(info.getClassName());
          break;
        }
      }
    } catch (UnsupportedLookAndFeelException e) {
      // handle exception
    } catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
      // handle exception
    } catch (InstantiationException e) {
      // handle exception
    } catch (IllegalAccessException e) {
      // handle exception
    }
      LookAndFeelFactory.installJideExtension(LookAndFeelFactory.EXTENSION_STYLE_VSNET_WITHOUT_MENU);
    new LookAndFeelTest();
  }

  public LookAndFeelTest() {
    super("Test");
    setSize(640, 480);
    JMenuBar menuBar = new JMenuBar();
    menuBar.add(new JMenu("File"));
    menuBar.add(new JMenu("Help"));
    setJMenuBar(menuBar);
    menuBar.revalidate();
    menuBar.repaint();
    setVisible(true);
  }
}

Thanks,
