Help with java Button
How about I'm making a music player but I like the look of the button you added the image as ImageIcon because for example the play button is round and I want to lose those edges rectangular button and wanted to find a way to insert that image and which can also be manipulated as a button. But I want you when you click on this image of an effect I click for example the color becomes a little lighter or something like that is highlighted thanks.

This is the image I'm using: [img]http://us.123rf.com/400wm/400/400/elementals83/elementals831103/elementals83110300015/8991919-botones-de-web-azul-para-la-interfaz-del-reproductor-de-medios.jpg[/img]

You can also use JLabel as the button and then add MouseListener to it.

Yes you can, but, truthfully, I would rather use the method outlined by mKorbel. That is mostly "personal opinion", but not completely, to tell you the truth. ;-)
