        Description



        Name: gm110360 Date: 08/11/2003


        A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
        While Java emulates the XP look and feel on Windows XP, the menu has a brown border around the white background of the menu.

        JUSTIFICATION :
          To have a look and feel similar to native applications on Windows XP

        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        The context menu must not contain the brown border. The color of this border is the default background color of Windows application
        ACTUAL -
        A bevelled brown border is present around the menu.

        Name: gm110360 Date: 06/01/2004


        FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
        java version "1.5.0-beta"
        Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0-
        Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0-beta-b32c, mixed mode)

        ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
        Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        Native menu separators in Windows XP do not extend to the full width of the Menu. There are gaps left on either side.
        This is not the case with the Windows L&F and JMenu separators.
        XP L&F JMenu separators do not have these small gaps on either side between them and the menu.
        Native windows separators do.

        REGRESSION. Last worked in version tiger-beta

        STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
        Open SwingSet2
        Switch to Windows L&F
        Drop down the file menu and look at the separator.

        EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
        EXPECTED -
        JMenu drops down with correct looking separator with small gaps to the left and right of it.
        ACTUAL -
        JMenu drops down with separator that is the same width (left to right) as the JMenu itself.

        REPRODUCIBILITY :
        This bug can be reproduced always.

        ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
        Use SwingSet2
