Hello, I have a tricky question, where I am not sure if java would supprot what I need. I am drawing grahps using Graphics in a class that exdends Applet. I would like to be able to draw two different things on the same 'canvas' without overwriting one another. Something that comes to mind as analogy is Layers but I couldn't find if Graphics has this or similar feature. Basically, right now, if I want to draw something new on the canvas, I have to erase (owervrite) what was there before but I don't want to do that. I want to be able to add something on top of the old graphic and then later remove what I had drawn on top and still have the old graphic be there intact. Any suggestions if this is possible and if yes, how I can do that? (I am using Graphics methods such as: g.drawString, g.drawLine, g.drawLine etc.) Help appreciated, Ivan
Please do not cross post questions. I am leaving the one in the Swing forum open as this question is more specific to AWT/Swing Layers and has less to do with Applets. This post will be closed. Please continue this discussion here.
