    Post using paintcomponent to draw over a jbutton

    hello,

    i am trying to draw an image with the graphics object in paintcomponent on top of a jbutton, but the jbutton keeps showing up on top of the image, even when i add the button first then the paint component.

    kind of like

    Java Code:
    public myclass{
    myjbutton = new jbutton();
    myframe.add(myjbutton);
    myframe.add(this);
    }
    public void paintcomponent(g){
    g.drawimage(myimage, 0, 0, this);
    }
    anyone know how to draw images in paintcomponent over jbuttons?

    Default Re: using paintcomponent to draw over a jbutton

    The paint( ... ) method does that: it calls the paintComponent( ... ) method and after that it paints the child components of the component to be painted.

    kind regards,

    Check out the use of Root Panes. Specifically the glass pane. It should allow you to do what you want.

    to jim:

    this was a seperate problem that was resolved by switching "paintComponent" to "paint"
