hey i have a problem. i set the background image to "something.png" its a repeating pattern which is just for the background. Here is the problem. When i resize my frame, the image only spreads so far, and then theres white space. so is there a quick and easy way to get the image to repeat?

sincerly,
Chris Dancy

the swing FAQ has an example
