Hello,
I'm having some trouble putting a background image on a frame using SWING.
What I have done is to create a panel that takes the entire frame or dialog and then a JLabel which I add to the panel. This label only contains an image that occupies the background. Afterwords I add my other panels to the JLabel and make them trasparent. I find it strange to add panels to a jlabel and so I guess there must be some other way. Any ideas?
Second, I'm having some problems resizing the image in function of the size of the display. Someone know how this can be done?
Thanks a lot

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
