NBPlayer Facelift



I redesigned the GUI for the mp3 plug-in for NetBeans. The "designed-as-in-photoshop" GUI is here:


Planned main player window


Planned toolbar integration

Now I only need to find time to convert it into Swing. I never used custom sliders so I am really wondering if I will be able to keep every pixel of the GUI as I sketched it.
Comments:

Looks very nice Roumen...I don't think you will have any issues with setting up the sliders...it will take some time to convert to swing but i'm sure you will find the time...up in the top left corner of the mp3 player how are you going to do the bars? Also how do you get the current progress through the song (what API are you using)?

I am using APIs from the Javazoom library. Right now the progress bar is broken thanks to my active contributor Jake (who is doing an amazing job btw :) but it used to work in the older version.

Looks almost like winamp. Well, I can't figure out if the buttons and so on are positioned exactly as the ones on winamp's form but this definitely is winamp layout ;).

Yes, I got a lot inspired by WinAmp :) But it's not a skin, I designed it in M$ Paint pixel-by-pixel - for some reason Gimp fails to start even after reinstall so I did it in M$ Paint.

Jake, I'm only teasing you... ;)

compress the window, try to pack in the buttons and the edge of the window, it'll make it a bit cleaner, feel faster. whitespace is a bad thing in trinkets...

Thanks. Well the thing is that I shouldn't change the size of the window, because I need it to fit into the default size of Navigator window which is given. I'll think about it...
