Hi Arun,

this is your second post with the subject "Applet" - how are we going to tell which one is which in the forum overview? In fact this isn't even an Applet question, but a generic Swing question. Please take some time to compose a meaningful subject line when posting a question, that will safe all those people who'd like to help you a lot of time, and therefore simply would be an act of respect. See

You can change the subject line by clicking the edit icon on your very first post of the thread.

Moving this and your other post to the Swing forum.

When you add a component to a container that's already visible on the screen, you must call validate() on the container afterwards. Until you do, the new component won't appear. Since here the applet itself is the container, just add the line


at the end of the event handler.
