JMetro Version 11.5.11 And 8.5.11 Released

Hi there again.

One more version with new JMetro styles (dark and light versions):

  • Split Menu Button
  • Split Pane
  • Pill Button / Segmented Button

Tweaks to existing styles and bug fixes.

Keep on reading for details.

Split Menu Button

Following is an animation showing the new Split Menu Button JMetro light and dark style:

Pill Button / Segmented Button

Segmented Button is a control from ControlsFX, however this is more of a convenience control as the style is already available in Modena (JavaFX default theme). That style is defined in Modena as Pill Buttons.

Following are the images of ThemeTester running and showing Pill Buttons with Modena and JMetro Light and Dark theme (click the images to see them bigger, in full screen).

The toolbar at the top also has Pill Buttons for selecting between the Modena and JMetro theme.
