    Default How to make these beautiful JPanels for Nimbus look and feel ?

    Hello everybody . I am new to this forum . I am currently working in Java swing . My current interest in Java L&F's ; nimbus to be precise !

    One thing which I am not able to do is create these beautiful JPanels ( groupboxes ) ( marked in red in below picture ) in Java for holding other components !



    BorderFactory.createTitledBorder() creates a title but not the lovely shading thing and beauty of what we see above ...

    CompoundBorder also does not seem to work ..

    Do I have to create a subclass of JPanel to do this ? Looking for your help . thanks ....waiting for your replies !

    Oh, there' just images. If you run the SwingSet3 (SwingSet3) demo and change the look and feel via the menu it is obvious that they are images. Try making similar effect in your paint software - or you could make a custom border and make it render how you want it to.
