    Default Help with creating a shape and moving it with mouse and keyboard!

    Hello I'm new to Java, and I have to make a solid shape and move it with my mouse and my keyboard.
    My teacher literally taught me nothing, and he is expecting me to do this project...
    Please help! Thank you!
    I have to use Netbeans IDE

    Start with Trail: Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing: Table of Contents (The Java™ Tutorials).

    It will show you how to create a GUI and add components to it. You can then start with section like "How to Write a Mouse Listener" to help with dragging. You might also want to check out the sectoin on "Custom Painting". To move the object with a keyboard you will want to check the section on "How to Use Key Bindings".
