      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      The caption of a toolbar once detached from the parent (owner) window is smaller in native win32 apps, while in java apps is the same as other windows. to see the difference you have to run swingset2 and a native win32 application, like worpad. then just detach the toolbars.
      or see http://www.javalobby.org/java/forums/t18431.html for screenshots.
      thanks.


      JUSTIFICATION :
      the end user should _not_ be able to tell if an application is a native one or a java one.

      There is a similiar request from NetBeans team (from CR 6453559 which is closed as duplicate of this one):

      "In NetBeans IDE application, we use several "helper" windows like Palette, Explorer, Navigator. Such helper windows are commonly presented in native applications with thin titlebar, to differentiate them from document windows which are more 'central'.

      However, there is no Java API to set thin titlebar on Window or Frame. Please make this functionality available, of course only for OSs which support some variant of thin titlebar."
