    Default Fill in rectangle partially (clip?¿)

    Hello, I've searched the forum and I couldn't find any answers so here's my problem:

    I have to partially fill in a rectangle, i'll express the idea using O's:

    O-O- O

    (-= white "squares/areas")

    more or less, basically I leave out certain white areas here's my code:

    Java Code:
    import javax.swing.*;
    import java.awt.*;
    public class Drawing{
      public static void main(String[] args) {
        Drawing d = new Drawing();
      public Color(){
        JFrame frame = new JFrame("faces");
        frame.getContentPane().add(new MyComponent());
      public class MyComponent extends JComponent{
        public void paint(Graphics g){
          int height;
          int width;
    the two g.fillRect lines that are NOT commented out fill in the first collumn and first row respectively, however I cant manage to fill a different row (3rd)....
    (and individual squares within a given row column)

    Any ideas?

    pd g.clipRect(1,1,50,40) making the start coords 0,0 doesnt seem to make any difference...

    You'll have to divide your rectangle into a grid of rectangles, and paint the spaces in that grid that you want painted. Probably a 2D array of something like GridPoint that you can activate/deactivate depending on whether you want it filled or not(or it tracks its own color) and also give it a draw/paint method.
    If the above doesn't make sense to you, ignore it, but remember it - might be useful!
    And if you just randomly taught yourself to program, well... you're just like me!
