Change color for DockableFrame

Postby gaeworker » Wed May 09, 2012 8:18 am

Hello,

As shown in the attached screenshot, I would like to change the color for the active title background (one with golden color), and the skyblue background of the underlying pane.

I've tried the following but it doesn't seem to work:
Code: Select all
UIManager.getDefaults().put("DockableFrame.activeTitleBackground", Color.blue);
UIManager.getDefaults().put("JFrame.background", Color.gray);


I suspect I didn't use the correct key in the put() method and therefore not able to target the correct component. Could someone please help me on this one?

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Please give the following code a try to change the active colors. For the side title, it is light gray already when I run the demo with Windows default L&F under 3.4.0. Can you please let us know your configurations so that we can see why it's painted light blue?

Thanks,

Hello.

I have the exact same problem described in this Post. I have searched the forum and I can't find an answer for this problem.

I am using

Code: Select all
UIManager.getDefaults().put("DockableFrame.activeTitleBackground", Color.black);


but nothing changes.

I have looked at the two source code files attached in the last comment but I can't find a solution there.

Support has showed me how to resolve the color change for the title bar background.

- First, you have to overwrite the paintDockableFrameTitlePane method for the Office2007Painter, you can see how to do it looking at the file DockingFrameworkDemo.java provided by support in the previous comment.

The line
Code: Select all
g2d.setColor(active ? Color.GREEN : Color.BLUE);

is the one you have to change to use your preferred color, for either active or inactive.

This will change the background of the tile bar but you still have to change the color around the DockableFrame.

- Second, you have to change the color around the DockableFrame.
To do it, you have to implement your own JideTabbedPaneUI, the line
Code: Select all
UIManager.getDefaults().put("JideTabbedPaneUI", ExtendedJideTabbedPaneUI.class.getName());

in the DockingFrameworkDemo.java replaces the JideTabbedPaneUI by your own class ExtendedJideTabbedPaneUI, this class is provided in the previous comment by support.

To change the color around the DockableFrame, in the line
Code: Select all
 backgroundEnd = Color.GREEN; // note: change the color here

use your preferred color
