Can i place containers over each other in a transparant way ?
So that the content (a graph) of all containers is seen.
I have to draw 4 graph on a container. When a graph is updated than i can only update the container that contains the graph.
If this isn't homework, just use JFreeChart.
No, it is not homework.
But i want to try it myself, because of the special features i need.
So, is it possible ?
I don't know, because I haven't a clue about those 'special features' that rule out using JFreeChart or other available charting library. But if you take your best stab at it and post here with a specific question anytime you run into problems, someone will surely try to help.
Any specific questions on this would probably sit better in the AWT / Swing or Java 2D forum.
Is layered pane an option for me ?
i don't understand why you need to layer them just to see a graph in all the containers? if the graph is going to take up that same spot in each container, you should be making 1 container not 4 isn't it? or have the 4 containers, but 3 of them sitting inside the main one.
