Hi there,
The Graphics class has a drawRect method. Does it have a method that will draw a rectangle but with dotted lines?

Not Graphics, but Graphics2D does... As long as you're using any version of the JDK newer than 1.2 you can just cast the Graphics parameter of the paint() method to a Graphics2D object.
