got a quick question if anyone can answer it. I want the drawRect(int,int,int,int) method to draw a rect in from one point to the next point. The problem is that drawRect() only draws from the topLeft corner of the screen to the bottomRight corner of the screen. If you try to draw it another way, it doesent work. Here is my code, can someone please tell me what im doing wrong? thanks

//Main class

class MouseDrawer extends MouseAdapter

{

public void mousePressed(MouseEvent e)

{

x1 = e.getX();

y1 = e.getY();

fUpperLeft.setText(String.format("%d,%d",x1,y1));

mainPanel2.repaint();

}

}

class MouseMotionDrawer extends MouseMotionAdapter

{

public void mouseDragged(MouseEvent e)

{

x2 = e.getX();

y2 = e.getY();

mainPanel2.setValues(x1,y1,x2,y2);

fArea.setText(String.format("%d",mainPanel2.getArea()));

fPerimeter.setText(String.format("%d",mainPanel2.getPerimeter()));

fLowerRight.setText(String.format("%d,%d",x2,y2));

fUpperLeft.setText(String.format("%d,%d",x1,y1));

mainPanel2.repaint();
