Class SynthStyleFactory

  extended by javax.swing.plaf.synth.SynthStyleFactory

public abstract class SynthStyleFactory
extends Object

Factory used for obtaining SynthStyles. Each of the Synth ComponentUIs will call into the current SynthStyleFactory to obtain a SynthStyle for each of the distinct regions they have.

The following example creates a custom SynthStyleFactory that returns a different style based on the Region:

 class MyStyleFactory extends SynthStyleFactory {
     public SynthStyle getStyle(JComponent c, Region id) {
         if (id == Region.BUTTON) {
             return buttonStyle;
         else if (id == Region.TREE) {
             return treeStyle;
         return defaultStyle;
 SynthLookAndFeel laf = new SynthLookAndFeel();
 SynthLookAndFeel.setStyleFactory(new MyStyleFactory());
