Bug or feature?

Hi there,

In one of the optimizing dialogs the progress bar showed up quite thin. Is
this a bug or a feature?
(I hope it's the latter, I find it nice. :)

How did you applied that skin to your Idea?

You can add any look and feel to list of available look and feels by adding a swing.properties file to you JDK. You can find a description at http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/misc/plaf.html or in the documentation to the Alloy Look&Feel (which Adrei seems to use in the screenshot).

After adding a new look and feel to the JDK that is used by IDEA, you can select it under IDE Settings->Appearance->Look and Feel

It's this LnF:
http://www.incors.com/lookandfeel/index.php3

There are some issues with it, though, you might have to switch to IDEA's
default LnF in order to be able to access certain config dialogs
(Options/File Templates doesn't show up at all, for instance). But those are
alloy's problems, not IDEA's.

Andrei, I am the main developer of the Alloy Look&Feel. If you can list the issues with Alloy that you found we will try to solve them in the next release.

By all means, where do I post them?
Andrei

P.S. I was hoping the issues would be fixed, maybe JetBrains decide to ship
IDEA with Alloy once things work well, I think they look GREAT together.

I too like the sleek (accidental) progress bar.

I was sure, I've heard (or better: read) your name somewhere. Now I
know. BTW, very good work with Alloy!

I've seen a few times, but it not as well-reproducable as feature should be
:)

Perhaps a tracker request to ship IDEA with Alloy? I suspect Jetbrains are pretty happy with their own L+F, but as there doesn't seem to be a way to buy an end-user license for Alloy (only developer editions for $199), it might be the only way.

Sorry to bother again but I've followed the instructions from alloy site
and my Idea still doesn't know about Alloy theme.
I've put the alloy.jar in the lib/ext dir from Idea's JRE.
I've also put a jar with the alloy.properties file(which contains my license
code) in the same dir.
Now, the instructions from Sun specifies that the swing.properties should go
in the bin/
directory of jre. But the instructions from alloy tells me to put this file
in the lib/ dir of the jdk.
I've tried them both ways but still doesn't work.
When Idea starts I see a background color for a moment which looks like
alloy.
But then, the default theme of Idea is applied. And in the combo with looks
and feels
there is no alloy.

I'm using idea 823 and alloy 1.4.1 trial.

This is my swing.properties file:

swing.installedlafs = motif,windows,metal,mac,alloy
swing.installedlaf.motif.name = CDE/Motif
swing.installedlaf.motif.class =
com.sun.java.swing.plaf.motif.MotifLookAndFeel
swing.installedlaf.windows.name = Windows
swing.installedlaf.windows.class =
com.sun.java.swing.plaf.windows.WindowsLookAndFeel
swing.installedlaf.metal.name = Metal
swing.installedlaf.metal.class = javax.swing.plaf.metal.MetalLookAndFeel
#swing.installedlaf.mac.name = Mac
#swing.installedlaf.mac.class = com.sun.java.swing.plaf.mac.MacLookAndFeel
swing.installedlaf.alloy.name = Alloy
swing.installedlaf.alloy.class = com.incors.plaf.alloy.AlloyLookAndFeel
swing.defaultlaf=com.incors.plaf.alloy.AlloyLookAndFeel

Hmm, it works without any problems here.

THe problem on your system is obviously that the swing.properties file cannot be found, because otherwise the Alloy would at least be listed in the look&feel combo box.

The correct directory for the swing.properties file is jre/lib, at least that's how it works here. Please make sure that the properties file does not have an additional .txt suffix (can happen if you used the Windows Editor for creating it). And make sure that you put it in the lib directory of the correct JRE (should be the one in the IDEA program directory).

That's all I can think of now.

By mistake I forgot the swing.properties file in both dirs lib/ and bin/
from JRE. After I removed it from bin/, it works fine.

Thanks,

Daniel

When I used filzip to create the alloyProperties.jar it did not work. Only when I created the jar file with command line jar it did work. I don't know if other zip tools work better, but perhaps you should update the alloy docs to recommend using command line jar?!
