How to change the color or background color of JSplitPane divider?


I am trying to the set the background color for the JSplitPane divider. I've written the following code, but it doesn't seem to work.

BasicSplitPaneUI ui = (BasicSplitPaneUI) splitPane.getUI(); BasicSplitPaneDivider divider = ui.getDivider(); divider.setBackground(Color.decode("#FFFACD"));

I've even tried the suggestion given here <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/questions/2448502/how-to-set-background-color-to-a-divider-in-jsplitpane" rel="nofollow">How to set BackGround color to a divider in JSplitPane</a>

Can someone please point out the mistake or let me know any other approach?


This works for me

BasicSplitPaneDivider divider = (BasicSplitPaneDivider) splitPane.getComponent(2); divider.setBackground(Color.black); divider.setBorder(null);


I searched for many post for changing the divider color of split pane. And i did found the solution for it.

splitPane.setUI(new BasicSplitPaneUI() { public BasicSplitPaneDivider createDefaultDivider() { return new BasicSplitPaneDivider(this) { public void setBorder(Border b) { } @Override public void paint(Graphics g) { g.setColor(Color.grey); g.fillRect(0, 0, getSize().width, getSize().height); super.paint(g); } }; } }); splitPane.setBorder(null);

With the above code,we can set the color,set the border for the divider too.For more information,refer this <a href="http://shemnon.com/speling/2006/02/flattening-the-jsplitpane-divi.html" rel="nofollow">tutorial</a>


What Look and Feel are you using? The LaF can and often does override what you may set.
