    Default Jpanel and displaying graphics

    Would I use a Jpanel to display a square that I add the the panel.
    I want to display 3 panels and inside those panels i want to display a shape of a square, circle or rectangle.

    Would I use a jpanel to hold those shapes?

    How do I get this code to display my panel? It does not show up on my window.
    Java Code:
    JPanel panel1 = new JPanel();
    panel1.setSize(200, 200);
    panel1.setVisible(true);
    add( panel1 );

    You should be setting the "preferredSize", not the size.

    Read the API to find out what the paraementers are for the method and then fix the compile errors.

    Hello jdsflash.

    Looks like you dont add your panel to the frame?
    And setSize i would replace with panel1.setPreferedSize(new Dimension(200,200));

    Java Code:
    panel1.setPreferedSize(new Dimension(200,200));
    frame.add(panel1)

    Hope that helps.

    Regards / Magnus.

    Your welcome.

    Now if you had looked at the API earlier you would have had your answer in 1 minute rather than waiting around for someone to spoonfeed you the answer.
