Hi.. I'm trying to do a Frame with this draw that changes it's color each time I click the button... but it's not working ... can someone help me?

Here is the code.. ( only the button shows up in the screen).

public class MyDrawPanel extends JPanel {

public void paintComponet(Graphics g) {

g.fillRect(0, 0, this.getWidth(), this.getHeight());

int red = (int)(Math.random()*255);
int green = (int)(Math.random()*255);
int blue = (int)(Math.random()*255);
Color randomColor = new Color(red,blue,green);
g.setColor(randomColor);
g.fillOval(70,70,100,100);

}

}

Welcome to JavaRanch.

paintComponet


That's your problem - the method name is missing an "n". You may want to get in the habit of using the @Override annotation to avoid this kind of mistake.

You just misspelled paintComponent

Also, the packed frame isn't large enough for the circle to show up without resizing the frame. You may want to set the frame size specifically to a larger size and leave off the pack() call, or set the minimum and preferred size of the MyDrawPanel to a value that will take the size and location of the circle into account.
