Paint Method

I have created an applet and i am initialising my button in the init. But i am adding the buuton to the panel in the paint method and i am calling the repaint method in the start could u please help because the control is not visible as soon as the applet is loaded as well as when i lose the focus of the applet and get the focus of the applet again. I am also tying the code below for further understanding:
import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
public class Applettry extends JApplet
int count;
JButton b1;
JPanel panel;
public void init()
panel=new JPanel();
b1=new JButton(String.valueOf(count));
public void start()
public void paint(Graphics g)

you should not overwrite paint() without calling super.paint() at some point in the implementation.
And why don't you add the button in the init() method?
