Is it possible to change look and feel without recreate window? When I change look and feel after creating window (JFrame) I cannot see any change - I can change the look ony before creating window.

    :

    try SwingUtilities.updateComponentTreeUI(Component) after setting the new L&F:
    [code]
    try {
    UIManager.setLookAndFeel("myLookAndFeelName");
    } catch(Exception e) {
    e.printStackTrace();
    }
    JFrame myFrame = new JFrame();
    //... initialize your frame
    myFrame.setVisible(true);

    try {
    UIManager.setLookAndFeel("myLookAndFeelName");
    SwingUtilities.updateComponentTreeUI(myFrame);
    } catch(Exception e) {
    e.printStackTrace();
    }
    [/code]

    It works! Thanks
    But after
    SwingUtilities.updateComponentTreeUI(myFrame);
    components lose their border (border is set to default border).
