JTattooDemo displays a figure with Matlab uicontrols and Java components, and allows the user to modify the figure's look-and-feel (L&F) to any of the standard L&Fs installed on the system, as well to the JTattoo L&Fs.

To use this demo, unzip the file and run JTattooDemo.m

Hi, Yair,Nice Work
I tried to add only the mint alone to my gui but it didn't work ! How can I integrate it alone ?
which lines are the essentials ?

Some LnFs do not behave nicely on some Matlab releases and/or platforms. You can use JTattooDemo do see which of the LnFs work well on your specific configuration.

Hi, Yair, this is a nice demo and works. But whenever switching to other LnF, MATLAB shows lots of Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.lang.NullPointerException at ..., and the UI became somewhat unstable.
