Might be the easiest question there is but I tried alot of things and it didnt work. I am trying to paint a background picture on a JPanel. After many tries and failures on my own, I found the following example code on the web which many said is working fine:
I am supposed to switch the ???.jpg with the name of the image I am trying to use and I did. I am still getting a JPanel with the button but no background. I placed the image in the root of the package, and in the same package as is the JFrame class am using to display the JPanel. Still no luck.
It might be related to my class not finding the image or not able to read it or something I don't know and am out of ideas. Any help is greatly appreciated

I copy/pasted your code, changed the .jpg to a file name in the same directory compiled and ran the code - image appeared OK.
change to another .jpg and see how you go

Hello again and Thx for the reply,
I tried changing 3 images with no luck, Used JPG the three times and the same problem. Do I need them to be at certain resoultion, extension or any other paramter for that matter to work?
