Is there anyway of forcing a panel to repaint straight away? I have 2 panels. When somethign happens on one pannel, I want the other pannel to display the changes.

thanks in advance

You can call the repaint() method although it's really just a suggestion. The Event Dispatch Thread handles all that stuff automagically. Calling repaint generally does the trick though.
