    Default Help please, new to this

    hi i'm trying to change the background color on the start page of a tic tac toe game, but it doesn't seem to be working, here's the section of code.


    i'm using

    Java Code:
    start.setBackground(Color.RED);
    (there's other stuff but this is the only line I think there's a problem with.)

    where start is the JFrame, but it isn't changing the color. I'm more interested in an explanation of how to properly do it that the actual right answer, though either would be helpful

    thanks so much =D

    I'm hoping you didn't draw directly on the JFrame, instead you should be drawing on a JPanel, which is added to the JFrame. Just call setBackground(Color c); on the JPanel.
