    Hi guyz,

    I have a paint method that draws a circle with crossed-diagonal lines as follows

    Java Code:
    public void paint(Graphics Grafix){
    Grafix.drawLine(10, 20, 50, 70);
    Grafix.drawLine(50, 20, 10, 70);
    Grafix.drawOval(5, 20, 50, 50);
    Now I need to duplicate the circle with cross 6 time horizontally, how can i do that and place it into a Jpanel. below is my what i've.

    Java Code:
            panel_1 = new JPanel();
    Thanks a lot:)

    1) Learn standard Java naming conventions. Every book, tutorial, or example I've seen posted in the forums follow these basic standards. Don't make up your own. Variable name should NOT start with an upper cased character.

    2) Custom painting on a component is done by overriding the paintComponent() method NOT the paint() method. However, I am going to suggest a different approach.

    Create a custom Icon. In this case the custom painting is done in the paintIcon(...) method.

    Now you can add the icon to multiple JLabels and add your labels to your panel.

    If you need more help post your SSCCE showing the problem.
