AWT Button without Color ???

I generate a AWT Button and want to change the Color
with, button.setBackground(Color.red) for example,
but the Background of the Button is allways lightGray.
What's  wrong ????
and How can I change the Color of a AWT Button ?

You can't change an AWT Button's color.  Since it is done
with an OS-specific peer, it uses whatever the system thinks
is the correct color for a button.  You would have to make
your own button class - unquestionably a pain.

I think that it's bug in JDK 1.02
for win95 (at least I checked it with this release), and
found this problem several months ago too

To make custom looking components
override Canvas.class :(
