    Default Images on JPanels with applets?

    Hello, I'm trying to learn how to use applets but the switch from application to applet wasn't what I expected.

    I am trying to run a simple applet that just has a Panel in it with a background from an image file but I cannot seem to get it to work.

    Java Code:
    import javax.swing.JApplet;
    import javax.swing.JButton;
    public class DarkWaterReviwebBoot extends JApplet {
    	public void init() {
    		try {
    			javax.swing.SwingUtilities.invokeAndWait(new Runnable() {
    				public void run() {
    		} catch (Exception e) {
    		  System.err.println("createGUI didn't successfully complete");
    	private void createGUI() {
    		TexturedPanel titlePanel = new TexturedPanel("images/title.jpg");
    		titlePanel.add(new JButton("TEST"));
    Java Code:
    import java.awt.Dimension;
    import java.awt.Graphics;
    import javax.swing.ImageIcon;
    import javax.swing.JPanel;
    public class TexturedPanel extends JPanel {
    	private ImageIcon bgImage;
    	public TexturedPanel(String imagePath) {
    		bgImage = new ImageIcon(imagePath);
    	public void paintComponent(Graphics g) {
    		Dimension d = getSize();
    		g.drawImage(bgImage.getImage(), 0, 0, d.width, d.height, null);
    All I am doing is adding a Panel whos paint component should be overwritten to use a file image.

    Why isn't this working? When I run it, it is just a gray panel and the button is there.

    Thank You

    Applets are not supposed to access data directly on you computer since they are meant to be run over the internet.

    Read the secton from the Swing tutorial on How to Make Applets.
