Hi
I have to include Clock within my GUI so I tried to make one. This clock working fine but its look like its not update() itself , I looked at the API and I know that Swing don�t use update() like AWT does , I have to deal whit the UI Delegate , can anyone help me to provide update() like functionality in swing based container?

thanks

What about invoking the repaint() method?

Three changes:
Change the paintComponent method to paint. Change the Frame to JFrame (don't mix awt and swing). Change the add to frame.getContentPane().add(). There is a problem with overlaying of the time but at least it gives you a start.
You could use the clearRect() method of Graphics.

why not just add a JLabel to the JPanel, showing the time? the setText() mehtod of JLabel is Thread safe.
(sorry, I just don't understand why you're using the paint methods in this case. if you want a special font or background, that's no problem with JLabel.)
