Precise Windows Emulation

Our Windows look&feel focuses on a precise emulation on Windows 95, 98, NT, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, and now Windows 8 in the following areas: menus, icons, colors, borders, fonts, font sizes, insets, and widget dimensions. It honors the screen resolution (96dpi vs. 120 dpi) to adjust sizes, insets, and widget dimensions.

 High-Fidelity Multi-Platform Appearance

Plastic is an elegant multi-platform look&feel family that works very well on all Windows platforms, including XP. The Plastic themes have been tweaked for a harmonic integration with the majority of desktops so that your applications won’t alienate a Windows user.

 Simplifying Multi Platform Support

The JGoodies Looks help you support different Java versions and operating systems. Each look is consistent for Java 1.4, 5, 6 and now Java 7 – to the possible extent w. r. t. to features of the underlying Swing API.

In addition, Plastic, the JGoodies Windows look&feel, and the Windows native look use similar widget dimensions and widget font baselines to minimize layout differences between these looks.
