There seems to be some problems with using System Look and Feel so I thought I’d try an alternative Java Look and feel.
I don’t like the ForeUI Look and Feel, so could you maybe provide some info on alternative look and feels. I don’t quite know where to find them or how apply them.
You can try the nimbus look and feel shipped with JRE 6/7. Just open the settings window and select the “General” table, select the “Use Third-party Java Look and Feel Class” radio button and then input “com.sun.java.swing.plaf.nimbus.NimbusLookAndFeel” as the class name.
You can also try the metal look and feel shipped with JRE, try using “javax.swing.plaf.metal.MetalLookAndFeel” as the class name and you will see it.
If you are interested in other look and feel, you can google “Java look and feel” and you can find what you need. Just put the look and feel JAR file in ForeUI’s “lib” directory and then you can specify its class name after restarting ForeUI.
Please notice that we don’t (and not possible to) test ForeUI under other look and feels. By principle we don’t fix bugs caused by other look and feels, even if we do, the priority will be quite low.

Does this mean that you don’t test System Look and Feel for Windows 7 for instance?
System look and feels are kind of different. The number of system look and feels are quite limited so we can test them with ForeUI. However some of the bugs related to system look and feel could not be fixed if the bug is shipped with JRE.
