The goal of this project is to provide a modern look & feel that combines graphic ideas from Windows XP / Vista and MacOS 10.4. This look & feel is available for JDK 5.0+ only.

The main class is org.jvnet.substance.SubstanceLookAndFeel. In order to use Substance look and feel in your application, you can use one of the following:

  • UIManager.setLookAndFeel(new SubstanceLookAndFeel());
  • UIManager.setLookAndFeel("org.jvnet.substance.SubstanceLookAndFeel");
  • Start your VM with -Dswing.defaultlaf=org.jvnet.substance.SubstanceLookAndFeel

In any case, add the latest substance.jar to your classpath.
