Please could anyone consider following situation:
I have an instance (thumbnail)of class Thumbnail (that extends a JPanel.)en
It sits in a box.
When some event occurs, thumbnail must redraw itself AND CHANGE IT SIZE.
Alas, the redrawing takes place, but not the resizing. Even if I can overload setMaximumSize() or setPreferredSize(). I must have missed something?
Here is the code (sorry if it to much)

Thanks for your time.

Quick suggestion... try to revalidate the component that contains the thumbnail, not the thumbnail itself. I'll look closer at the code later and see if I notice anything else.
