Don't want to show the panel building

Hi guys,

I've noticed that sometimes when you create a JPanel and fill it with components, it is shown to the end user.

What I mean is. Even though the operation happens very quickly, you can still see the system constructing the panel.

Is there a way to stop this from happening? Am I doing something in the wrong order?

Any help is much appreciated.

ensure setVisible() is coded after the panel is constructed
I agree. Here's the link:
