Office Look and Feels E-mail
User Rating: / 9
PoorBest 

This project provides a single jar file that you can add to your Java Swing applications to enable Look and Feels modeling the following popular Microsoft applications:

  • Office XP
  • Office 2003
  • Visual Studio 2005

Of course, your Swing application MUST be running on a Windows box to use these LnFs. The reasons for this are twofold: first, the LnFs are built upon the standard Windows Look and Feel, which is available only in Windows JRE's, and second, I'm not too sure about the legal ramifications of copying Windows applications' look and feels/icons/etc. on other platforms.

The jar provides three look and feels. You can have your application use one of them by adding the following code to the beginning of your application:

      try {

         UIManager.setLookAndFeel(
            "org.fife.plaf.Office2003.Office2003LookAndFeel");
         //UIManager.setLookAndFeel(
         // "org.fife.plaf.OfficeXP.OfficeXPLookAndFeel");
         //UIManager.setLookAndFeel(
         // "org.fife.plaf.VisualStudio2005.VisualStudio2005LookAndFeel");

      catch (Exception e) {
         System.err.println("Oops!  Something went wrong!");
      }

This will set the UI for all modified components, just like any other Look and Feel.

The jar also contains the icons used by Office XP and 2003 applications; they are located in the following directories:

  • org/fife/plaf/OfficeXP/images
  • org/fife/plaf/Office2003/images
