    Default Window title bar re-desing

    Hi,

    I would like to redesign the title bar and the borders of a window.

    About the bar, I want to present custom buttons for close, minimize and maximize actions. This buttons are only visually different and should appear on right, like a normal Windows window. On the left should appear a menu with the typical entries File, Edit, View, etc.

    Regarding the borders, I simple want to remove them (the side and bottom ones).

    I took a look on the "Modifying the Look and Feel" tutorial (Lesson: Modifying the Look and Feel (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing)) and it seems I must use the Synth or Nimbus L&F. The first one, at least, keeps the feel and works only as a skin. This is enough for me, despite I actually didn't understand the main difference between them. Anyway, their sections don't explain how can I implement the above requisites. Are only focused on the representation of the Swing components, like labels, radio buttons and so on.

    I hope you can give some directions.

    Thanks in advance!

    Cool idea, pal, but I am afraid the only thing you can do with the super container is the only look and feel things...
    As I can remember, it is the OS thing and is given as a default one

    But to control the JFrame buttons you can use simple events tricks
