Hi everyone,

Other than JFileChooser, are there any nice looking open dialog classes available? Because, JFileChooser does the job, but graphically speaking, it looks a little bit awkward (in my humble opinion).

I was wondering if it is possible to actually use the open file dialog that netbeans uses for opening files?... If not, what are there any other possibilities?

Ok, problem solved, I found this snippet of code somewhere on the net and it works. Just put it before your open dialog code lines...

// Get the native look and feel class name
String nativeLF = UIManager.getSystemLookAndFeelClassName();

// Install the look and feel
try {
} catch (InstantiationException e) {
} catch (ClassNotFoundException e) {
} catch (UnsupportedLookAndFeelException e) {
} catch (IllegalAccessException e) {
