Description peterme2005 2006-06-27 10:28:08 UTC
Can we have a branding library such that we can give users of the software the
ability to change the branding of their given application. For example I want to
allow a user to change the splash screen, title bar icon, titlebar title and
perhaps even color schemes? Ideally id like this to sit under options i.e. Tools
-> Options -> Branding therefore perhpas linking this into the Options or SPI
library??

Thanks

No plans to implement anything of the sort in the platform. The design point is
branding customized by the application creator, not the end user. That said,
some of these things can be made customizable by a user if you write the support
for it. E.g. for color schemes, search for docs on NbTheme (applies only to Java
L&F, not native L&Fs). Window title can be modified by using reflective calls to
window system impl (cf. Hacks.java in projects/projectui). Use
dev@openide.netbeans.org for help but be aware some things will not be possible.
