I have a reusable class called as DuplicatorPanel. This class has two add/ remove buttons like in Mac if you are familiar.

The problem is that the screen gets updated with an extra row in case i have a main method in Duplicator itself. However if i have that in another panel as in HyperlinkBuilder then it does not repaint itself.

Please can someone help ?

This is another class that calls the above
