JOptionPane Icons

I have a couple of JInternalPane's that could use some icons.

The JOptionPane's icons work great, however I don't want to actually create a JOptionPane to get at them. I tried to track them down by looking at Sun's source code and by looking through the jars in the jre\lib directory (rt.jar, etc) and lib directory (tools.jar, etc).

But no Luck.

Anyone know where they hide these things?
Better yet, does anyone know of a way to grab them from code without creating an instance of JOptionPane?

These icons are managed by the UIManager and are stored inthe UIDefaults hashtable.

You can get at them like this :

import java.awt.*;
import javax.swing.*;

public class UIIcons extends JFrame{

     Container contentPane;

     public UIIcons(String[] args){
          super("UIIcons");
          this.setDefaultCloseOperation(EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
          contentPane = this.getContentPane();
          contentPane.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
          contentPane.add(new JLabel(UIManager.getIcon("OptionPane.errorIcon")));
          contentPane.add(new JLabel(UIManager.getIcon("OptionPane.informationIcon")));
          contentPane.add(new JLabel(UIManager.getIcon("OptionPane.questionIcon")));
          contentPane.add(new JLabel(UIManager.getIcon("OptionPane.warningIcon")));
     }

     public static void main(String[] args){
          UIIcons mc = new UIIcons(args);
          mc.setSize(300,100);
          mc.setVisible(true);
     }
}

Perfect, thanks.
I don't know why I didn't catch that when I was looking at the source.
