Custom Synth L&F on Mac OSX

Postby jDiddy » Sun Jul 22, 2012 12:37 pm

Hi

I am developing a swing application using a custom synth L&F. I keep getting null pointer exceptions on Mac OSX (tis ok on windows platform) when I load my custom synth L&F. I can see this has something to do with UIDefaultsLookup missing keys for just about everything. Having read the documentation regarding com.jidesoft.plaf.LookAndFeelFactory I am still slightly unaware of how to configure my L&F or the UIDefaultsInitializer/UIDefaultsCustomizer on how to obtain/define the values required. If someone could give me some pointers on how to define this or add the required resources it would be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Jonathan

Update:

Managed to get it working, not sure if this is how you should do things, and still seems slightly strange that it is only for Mac OSX, shortly after setting the synth L&F:
Code: Select all
LookAndFeelFactory.UIDefaultsInitializer def = new LookAndFeelFactory.UIDefaultsInitializer(){
                @Override
                public void initialize(UIDefaults uiDefaults) {
                    uiDefaults.put("controlText", Color.black) ;
                    uiDefaults.put("controlHighlight", Color.black) ;
                    uiDefaults.put("controlLtHighlight", Color.black) ;
                    uiDefaults.put("controlShadow", Color.black) ;
                    uiDefaults.put("controlDkShadow", Color.black) ;
                    uiDefaults.put("activeCaptionText", Color.black) ;
                    uiDefaults.put("controlDkShadow", Color.black) ;
                    uiDefaults.put("control", Color.black) ;
                    uiDefaults.put("controlShadow", Color.black) ;
                    uiDefaults.put("activeCaption", Color.black) ;
                    uiDefaults.put("StyledLabelUI", Color.black) ;
                    uiDefaults.put("textHighlight", Color.black) ;
                }
} ;
LookAndFeelFactory.addUIDefaultsInitializer(def);

Thanks

Synth L&F doesn't have those UIDefault configured as other L&Fs did. That's why you need to use UIDefaultsInitializer to add those missing UIDefaults.
