Hello, How do I set background image for an applet, where I use GridBagLayout to position my components? Can I set a background for a JPanel, and then in turn add components to that JPanel using GridBagLayout? thanks, Alex

Yes... but you'll have to make a special JPanel that will paint the image in the background... and make sure that any JPanels you add to it have setOpaque( false ) set on them so the Image shows through... and make sure to use the Java 2 Plugin to use Swing in your applets!
Here's some code to illustrate an implementation of the JPanel with the background image...
