    Default Dialog box clearing graphics

    Im having a problem - I have graphics being drawn in an applet's paint method and elsewhere in the applet (some mouse listening). I have a dialog box that pops up and when it shows it erases the image it covers. This seems to happen on XP systems but not Windows 7.
    Any ideas?

    First post, I could send code, if needed.
    Thanks,
    JB

    Default

    Indicative of not performing custom painting the correct way. Recommended reading:

    Also, never never never use getGraphics() of a component.
