JFileChooser

In the JFileChooser there are two Icons that I believe are Details/NonDetails buttons.  They are always disabled in the examples.  Is there a way to either enable them or get rid of them?

Unfortunately, this is a known bug in Java 1.3.  However, there is good news.  It is slated to be fixed in merlin build (1.4 I believe).  

From sun site:

http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/bugParade/bugs/4105173.html

This functionality hasn't been implemented in filechooser yet. On our todo list.

Does not occur with 1.2.2-R.

Fixed in merlin-beta for Windows L&F. JLF/metal fix pending.

Merlin Beta is the next version of Java.  Currently, we (including JBuilder4.0) are on version jdk1.3.  Merlin is jdk1.4.  So until 1.4 is released, we're stuck unless some enterprising developer somewhere has found a work-around for this.  I have yet to find anything anywhere about one.

The final release date for 1.4 is scheduled for 4th quarter of 2001, but sun has released a beta version of 1.4 which can be found at the following link:

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/

If you decide to download and install 1.4, please let me know if the JFileChooser is truly fixed.  Thanks
