hi guys,
i want to write a chess game and just dont know how i could make the visual part of the game in swing.
i haved searched this forum for older topics but didn't found anything that could help me.
what i want to know is which components do i have to use to draw the board and put the pieces on that board and of course move the pieces around that board. i dont need full sources of a chess game. i just want to see some examples how i could realize this.
thanks for helping,
