hey,
i am creating an instant messenger .... for making the GUI i am using the following code ...

[code]
public class GUIHandler {

private JFrame frame = null;

public GUIHandler() {
frame = new JFrame();
frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
frame.setSize(new Dimension(160,340));
JFrame.setDefaultLookAndFeelDecorated(true);
frame.setTitle("Yahoo!!");
initMenu();
initFrame();
frame.show();
}

private void initMenu(){
JMenu loginMenu = new JMenu("Login");
JMenuItem loginItem = new JMenuItem("Login..", KeyEvent.VK_L);
loginItem.setAccelerator(KeyStroke.getKeyStroke(KeyEvent.VK_1,
ActionEvent.ALT_MASK));
loginMenu.add(loginItem);
/*loginItem.addActionListener(new ActionListener(){
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent action){
SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable(){
public void run(){
showLoginBox();
}
});*/
loginItem.addActionListener(new ActionListener(){
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent action){
SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable(){
public void run(){
showLoginBox();
}
});
}
});
JMenuBar menuBar = new JMenuBar();
menuBar.add(loginMenu);
frame.setJMenuBar(menuBar);
}

private void showLoginBox(){

JPanel outerPanel1 = new JPanel();
Border paneEdge = BorderFactory.createEmptyBorder(0,10,10,10);
outerPanel1.setBorder(paneEdge);
outerPanel1.setLayout(new BoxLayout(outerPanel1, BoxLayout.Y_AXIS));

JPanel newUserPanel = new JPanel();

JButton registerButton = new JButton("Register");
registerButton.addActionListener(new ActionListener(){
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent action){
registerNewUser();
}
});

TitledBorder titled;
titled = BorderFactory.createTitledBorder("NewUser?");

/* newUserPanel.setSize(new Dimension(100,80));*/
newUserPanel.setLayout(new BoxLayout(newUserPanel, BoxLayout.Y_AXIS));
newUserPanel.setBorder(titled);

JPanel panel = new JPanel();
/*panel.setSize(new Dimension(100,80));*/
panel.add(registerButton);
newUserPanel.add(panel);

/*JPanel existingUserPanel = new JPanel();
existingUserPanel.setName("Existing User?");
TitledBorder existingUserTitle;
existingUserTitle = BorderFactory.createTitledBorder("title");

existingUserPanel.setLayout(new BoxLayout(newUserPanel, BoxLayout.Y_AXIS));
existingUserPanel.setBorder(existingUserTitle);

final JTextField name = new JTextField();
final JTextField password = new JTextField();
JButton login = new JButton("Login");
login.addActionListener(new ActionListener(){
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent action){
onLogin(name.getText(), password.getText());
}
});
existingUserPanel.add(name);
existingUserPanel.add(password);
existingUserPanel.add(login);
*/
outerPanel1.add(Box.createRigidArea(new Dimension(0, 10)));
outerPanel1.add(newUserPanel);

/*JPanel outermostPane = new JPanel();
outermostPane.setLayout(new BoxLayout(outermostPane, BoxLayout.Y_AXIS));
outermostPane.add(outerPanel1);
outermostPane.add(existingUserPanel);*/

JFrame loginFrame = new JFrame("Login");
try {
UIManager.setLookAndFeel(
UIManager.getCrossPlatformLookAndFeelClassName());
} catch (Exception e) { }

//Make sure we have nice window decorations.
JFrame.setDefaultLookAndFeelDecorated(true);
loginFrame.setContentPane(outerPanel1);
loginFrame.setSize(new Dimension(150,200));
loginFrame.setFocusable(true);
JWindow window = new JWindow(loginFrame);
loginFrame.show();

}

private static void registerNewUser(){

}
private void onLogin(String name, String password){

}
private void initFrame(){

}
}
[/code]

The login window which i get on clicking the menu from the menubar is java style window although i have tried setting the defaultLookAndFeel of the login JFrame to true....
Any help??
