How to create a new look and feel ?

Hello,

I would like to know please, how to create a new look and feel ? for example, how to customize the background of the project tree ? currently its white.

As for the code color scheme, I can copy color scheme and update the new one, but, how to do so with look and feel ??

Thanks for the great work!

Hello Samir,

Unfortunately creating new Look And Feel is quite challenging task even for the Java Swing Experts. I would recommend you to choose appropriate look and feel for your system: in case of Windows - Windows Theme, in case of Linux with Gnome - GTK+ L&F a try to play with system L&Fs.
