Hello,

Small things always...

How do I change the disabled background color of a JButton to something else other than std. Gray. Is this possible?.

You can set the property:
          "Button.foreground"

Warning: it behaves different in various look&feel's.

Sorry I meant:

          "Button.disabledForeground"

which defaults to:

             InactiveTextColor

Try this:

               UIManager.put(Button.disabledForeground", Color.RED);

So how do I do this. Can you show an example?. Do I have to fire a property change call?.

JButtoon aButton = new JButton();
...
..
if (what ever the condition)
{
  //I want to disable the button and change the disabled color to something else other than Gray
  aButton.set??????();            // ??
}

Reading is hard these days:

               UIManager.put(Button.disabledForeground", Color.RED);

as the first line of your code and all disabled buttons should have that colour.
