    Default Using my own-designed buttons & textboxes

    Hi everyone,

    I am new to Java Swing and need to develop an application using my own set of buttons, textboxes etc. (that I created using, let's say, MS Paint)

    Please warn me if I am being vague. I want to explain it more by giving an example.

    As a newbie, when I open Net Beans IDE, in the design tab, there is this menu called Palette.



    Can I add another item consisting of buttons and textboxes, that are designed by me, to this menu?

    Check your NetBeans help files and it will tell you how you can add custom components to the NetBeans palette via the Palette Manager. I wouldn't attempt anything like this though until I understood Swing quite well, including how to create Swing GUI's by hand without using NetBean's drag and drop.

    Just one more question. From what I understood after a little search on google, I need to have the definitions for such a component as a jar file. Can anyone give me an example so I look and try to imitate.
