Is there a way to find out the "visible" area of a button? That is, to
do something like button.getBounds() but to get information about what
part of the button you can populate with an image?

By experimentation (and maybe this is documented somewhere but I didn't
find it) I discovered that buttons pay attention to setSize() (or not)
depending on the layout set in their parent. But this is parenthetical.
Anyway, I was able to get a button assume a fixed size, and I can make
an Image that fills the whole button (including the rows and columns of
pixels that indicate if the button is pressed or not). But I would much
prefer to find out the actual *visible* area of the button so I can make
an Image that fills that area. The "client area" if the button, if you

Is there a way to get that information?
