Metro style ComboBox for Java (JMetro)

I’ll start this post by clarifying the purpose of this project. This project aims to provide skins for Javafx controls that are inspired by Metro style in Windows 8. The light theme tries to match as closely as possible the Windows 8 look while the dark theme which is not available on windows 8 is inspired by the metro look and provides a dark version.

There are some controls that exist in JavaFX but do not exist on Windows 8, for those controls I’ll try to reproduce a version that I think matches as closely as possible the Metro guidelines.

Finally, I’ve added one more style to the list of available controls: the ComboBox. Like I said before the light theme for this control tries to match as closely as possible the available version that exists on Windows 8, while the dark theme is a fresh new style inspired by the same Windows 8 control.
