    Default How can I loop sounds in JPanel?

    I need to play background music in a JPanel. I googled everywhere but there is only examples for Applets. Can someone give me some help on how to play background music in a JPanel? thank you!

    Swing components have nothing to do with sound although there is a static method in the Applet class (you don't need to build an Applet) that can load an AudioClip for you; given that AudioClip you can play, loop or stop it. Don't implement that loading and playing logic in your JPanel itself; it takes away the distinction between controller logic and view (display) logic. As I wrote: visual components have nothing to do with sound (nor with database, nor with arrays, nothing, just displaying stuff).

    kind regards,

    Loading the AudioClip is done by that method and when the music should be played is completely up to you.

    kind regards,
