Is there a way to set a default font for a swing application?

Sandip Chitale

A quick grep through the javax.swing.plaf.basic.BasicLookAndFeel.java indicates that the following should do the trick, when done at the very start of the application or whenever you change the look and feel -


UIManager.put("Button.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("ToggleButton.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("RadioButton.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("CheckBox.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("ColorChooser.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("ComboBox.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("Label.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("List.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("MenuBar.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("MenuItem.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("RadioButtonMenuItem.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("CheckBoxMenuItem.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("Menu.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("PopupMenu.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("OptionPane.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("Panel.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("ProgressBar.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("ScrollPane.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("Viewport.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("TabbedPane.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("Table.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("TableHeader.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("TextField.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("PasswordField.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("TextArea.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("TextPane.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("EditorPane.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("TitledBorder.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("ToolBar.font", /* font of your liking */);
UIManager.put("ToolTip.font", /* font of your liking */);
