      Description

      Name: rmT116609 Date: 08/21/2003


      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.4.2"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2-b28)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2-b28, mixed mode)

      FULL OS VERSION :
      Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      JProgressBar, when set to indeterminate mode, renders as a bar moving left-right-left, on Windows 2000 and XP, with WindowsLookAndFeel.

      Actually WindowsXP's native components render indeterminate mode progress bars as a couple of dots, moving left-right, then starting again left-right.

      You can see the actual behaviour when using the "search for files" facility on WindowsXP.

      AFAIK this is called "marquee" style and was introduced with WindowsXP.

      It is a visual fault to not simulate that visual style.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Create JProgressBar. Set Indeterminate to true. Look how it renders.
      Then open file search facility on WindowsXP. Search for some file. Look how that renders.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Should render same as WindowsXP does.
      ACTUAL -
      Renders like Metal Look and Feel.

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
