    Default Does javax.swing.JToggleButton even lift ??

    So, i needed a toggle button, that could do a simple things : be able to set ToggleOn or ToggleOff icons, to have a simple event listeners, like if(toggleOn) {do these things} and if(toggleOff) {do these things}. Now, in reality, JToggleButton doesnt have any of toggling functionality by default, it is 1:1 to a simple JButton ... *moderated*

    Hmmm. Not sure if this a real question or a rant with little/no purpose other than to vent. I expected you assumed some functionality of JToggleButton that it doesn't have, but you could have determined that on the API page.

    Edit: And here is a simple example of how to use it.

    You can program a JButton to do what you've described fairly easily.

    Yes, i can do it myself, but i noticed, that there is jtogglebutton too, and i expected it to have things like "myJToggleButton.setSelectedIcon(new ImageIcon("images/picture.png"));", just for toggle on/off icons, and "private void myToggleButtonToggleOnPerformed(java.awt.event.Act ionEvent evt);", "private void myToggleButtonToggleOffPerformed(java.awt.event.Ac tionEvent evt);".

    setSelectedIcon is inherited from the Abstractbutton class, says so right there in the API. What problem do you have using it?

    setSelectedIcon is not what i needed (or just a wrong name choosen by devs), i have made my own real toggle buttons. I have a few more questions, i did not google about them yet, but maybe you know the answers.

    (it's optional, i dont have to do this, it would be just additional feature) in my program i'm adding and removing buttons, i know i can set icon on button by "myJButton.setIcon(ImageIcon icon)", is there an easy way to add appearance animation on my button by code, like transparency going from 100% to 0 % ? Cause as far as i now, in gif you can set only one transparrent color, and it wouldnt be high quality animation, and i dont know, if java supports things like animated png (apng), and if it does, i dont know, if apng animation could be played once every time when button appears - i have jpanel panel, i have jbutton button, and i do things like "panel.add(button, 0); panel.repaint()" and "panel.remove(button); panel.repaint();".
