A JXMenuBar ?
I discovered some weeks ago the swinglabs project and I must say I was very impressed by such a project ! I was pleased to see a project permitting to make really nice looking swing apps.
I would like to participate to this project and I'm deeply studying the swingx's components sources in order to well understant how it works.
I though about a component which may have a place in the project, a "JXMenuBar" component that would permit to easily manage three things :
- translucency of the submenus
- painting of the bar (using Painters)
- possibility to add a JXHeader to the bar (added just above the bar)
I though about these three things because it seems to me that they are three functionalities that many developers may be interested in (but maybe I'm wrong or I am forgetting other things) ?
What do you think about it ? Is it for you a good idea to implement a component like that or is it unnecessary ? Thanks a lot for your feedbacks.
