Hope someone can help. I am having a heck of a time getting my checkbox selections to paint properly. When I try to select one, it does not show selected although it is when I retrieve it. have tried calling repaint() on itemStateChanged(), but that does not work. Please help.
Sounds fishy... Are you "painting" anything else besides the little check mark in the little square? What does your code look like?

nope...just trying to get the check to show. Here is a snippet: (Used VisualCafe to create GUI) At class level: javax.swing.JCheckBox chkBean = new javax.swing.JCheckBox(); From within no-arg constructor: getContentPane().add(chkBean); chkBean.setFont(new Font("Dialog", Font.BOLD, 12)); chkBean.setBounds(324,300,24,40);

I tried the following code:
and found that the call to setBounds() didn't do a darn thing. I figure because the FlowLayout object takes control over where things go and overrides setBounds(). Take a look at your auto-generated code and see how the setBounds() call gibes with whatever layout model is in effect...
