in most places in OS X, lists and tables use alternating row background colors.
These make the data in the list easier to read, especially when there are many
rows. Examples are the list of updates in Software Update, and the main
overview screen in iTunes. Both use striped background of white and blue.
Unfortunately the standard JList and JTable with the Aqua look and feel come
with plain white backgrounds. I’ve been trying to emulate the look of the
striped lists by changing the ListCellRenderer, but with this I can only change
the backgrounds of the actual rows, and not of the ‘empty’ rows in
the table. It also has the disadvantage that I have to use my own subclass every
time. Is there any better way to achieve this look, and install it for all
JList and JTable instances? Also, is there a good way to request this look becoming
the default in future versions of Apple’s Aqua look and feel?
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
