    Cool JButton User Draw Text?

    I am new to Java but not to GUI programming. I have created a JButton with both an Icon and Text on the center of the button. The problem I have is that the control thinks the text is too big to fit on the button and draws the text as "...". Pixel-wise it will fit just fine. Is there a way for me to draw the text myself?

    Don't set sizes or preferredSizes. Use layout managers correctly.


    edit And controls don't think but, unfortunately for them, programmers sometimes think a little too much ;)
