    As always, the API is your best friend: BorderFactory (Java Platform SE 7 )

    Thank you. I checked it but there's something that I don't understand. for creating a TitledBorder, there are 6 ways:
    1: createTitledBorder(Border border)
    2: createTitledBorder(Border border, String title)
    3: createTitledBorder(Border border, String title, int titleJustification, int titlePosition)
    4: createTitledBorder(Border border, String title, int titleJustification, int titlePosition, Font titleFont, Color titleColor)
    5: createTitledBorder(String title)
    6: createTitledBorder(String title)

    but none of these specifies the thickness of the border itself.

    --- Update ---

    I did this to make it work but it doesn't work :

    Border title = BorderFactory.createLineBorder(myColor, 2);
    headerPanel.setBorder(BorderFactory.createTitledBo rder(title, "ورود", TitledBorder.RIGHT, TitledBorder.DEFAULT_JUSTIFICATION, myFont, myColor));

    What do you mean when you say it doesn't work? What happens if you user a thicker line, like 10?

    I don't know why the last time I tried, It didn't show the title. Then I changed the code and again pasted this code and it worked. Everything was OK. Thankssssss
