    Default Changing the appearance of a disabled button

    I currently have a program with a button that has an icon on it. When I disable the button, the icon turns grey. Is there any way to disable the button, but have it appear like it's enabled?

    Default Re: Changing the appearance of a disabled button

    Here is a general solution to your question and possible future questions. When asking about a specific class, look at all the methods of that class as well as the super classes. In this case the super class of JButton is AbstractButton. By doing this you may not only find answers to your current question but find useful methods you can use in the future.

    The answer is to use the setDisabledIcon method.

    Regards,
    Jim
