Essentially question is on swings.I have a url label which extends a jlabel . when i call a set disabled method on it ,the component does display the value but is essentially not clickable and is in grey colour, but i want it to be in black or blue color. I have tried making it coloured by setting the forground color as well as used the UI manager but nothing helped. May be if i do a property change event it might help but i am not 2 sure . PLz help me with this,very urgent. Thankz in advance.
