I'm using a JTabbedPane for my GUI, and I'd like to customize its view a bit.
There are two things which I want to modify:
1) the gap at the bottom of the tabs (assuming my tabs are at the bottom of the screen). Under the tabs, there's a small gap (maybe a couple of pixels), and that's too much of a waste of space for my GUI, so I'd like to be able to set that gap to zero, so that my tabs appear like buttons at a SOUTH location
2) the border around the tabs. I'd like to make it non-visible. I mean, I'd like to have my icons one next to the other, without being able to see that each icon belongs to a tab. So that the user doesn't know which layout I'm using. The only thing the user should see are my icons.
Thanks a lot for your help.
Just a small clarification: I'll split the points between both questions, if the answers allow me to modify my GUI in the way I want to.
