GUI L&F

Jetbrainers - whats the chance of us being able to use the lovely Idea L&F
in our applications once the new GUI Builders available?

It sure is one of the nicer looking L&F's out there... I've been wanting
to use that since I started using Idea and toying with Swing.

Your plugins will have it by default :) Seriously, what is it that you like
about it particularly?

P.S. The look&feel for IDEA is being reworked now quite a lot.

Hmmm, not I think about it - I'm not really sure - it's clean, tidy, and
doesn't stand out as being something garishly horribly "java" on my Gnome2
desktop, like JBuilder and its use of the Metal L&F.

Ooo - any hints as to whats being changed ( and why? ) - I was gonna say
any screenshots, which - whilst would be neat, it'll be a good ( or
ghastly - but I doubt it ) surprise :)

why don't you offer the lookAndFeel for sale like incors( http://www.incors.com/lookandfeel )??? that seems to be the best solution for all!?

+1 - IDEA's LAF is the best I've seen for Swing. In some ways it's only a minor tweak on Metal, but it makes a huge difference. It'll be interesting to see what you come up with if you rework it.

You might take a look at JGoodies LnF.

JGoodies now have a freely available version of their L&F as well. I'm
using it in one small app.

Is the reworked idea L&F going to make into Aurora, if so when? looking forward to seeing what you guys are up to on that.

At $900 for a commercial licence, I should certainly hope it does look good!

Alloy LAF has a long lasting problem with IDEA. When alloy is active, try to
open Options/File Templates dialog. You will get IllegalStateException. I
reported this problem to IDEA team and they said that this is alloy's
problem not theirs.

Well Idea never was meant to be run with a third-party LAF.
The Incors people have reacted very quickly whenever we had
a problem with the Alloy LAF.
Also, please note that a commercial, single-developer
license is available for $199.
