quaqua

Use Quaqua to display a sheet in a Java Swing application on Mac OS X (Part 2)

 

The running program

The Quaqua JSheet effect is very nice, it works as advertised. My only problem with it currently is that it does something to distort the image when the JSheet is displayed. You can see this problem in the image shown below, where the coffee cup image that sits on top of the caution image does not look very good:

Quaqua JSheet - Display a sheet in a Java Swing application on Mac OS X

I'm always looking for ways to make my Java Swing applications on Mac OS X look more and more like native Mac applications, and when a co-worker mentioned the name Quaqua, I decided to take a look at that library/framework one more time. I had looked at it before, but this time, looking at it with a new mindset, I noticed it offers a JSheet implementation.
