I am working with Netbeans GUI and I would like to add 3 pixels of space at the beginning of my jTextField :
I have tryied with setMargin, setInset in the GUI but it doesn’t change anything.
I have another question, why the bottom right border is not rounded ? here is my code :
Border roundedBorder = new LineBorder(new Color(210,210,210), 1, true); researchTextField.setBorder(roundedBorder);
thank you very much,
setMargin(...) should work.
However, if you are also using a Border then that may be the problem.
Try using a
CompoundBorder where the inner border is an EmptyBorder() and the outer border is your other border. For example:
Border rounded = new LineBorder(new Color(210,210,210), 1, true); Border empty = new EmptyBorder(0, 3, 0, 0); Border border = new CompoundBorder(rounded, empty); textField.setBorder(border);
Read the section from the Swing tutorial on How to Use Borders for more information and examples.
why the bottom right border is not rounded ?
I’m not sure why your bottom/right is not rounded. Using the Metal LAF on XP the right borders (top and bottom) appear rounded but the left borders are not rounded. When I use a border size of 2 or more all corners appear equally rounded.
