I have a application using the JMenuBar withe some MenuItems . The application frame also contains some other components like buttons , textfields etc. The problem is that the menuitem are hiding below the other components whenever the menubar is clicked. That is i am able to see the menuitems which are above the other components. Please reply soon

If you have a JMenuBar you need to be using JMenu's and JMenuItems. If you mix AWT components (which are heavyweight) and Swing components (which are lightweight = no os peer component) the AWT stuff will hide the swing stuff.

What about the other components you mentioned? Are they JButtons and JTextFields or are you using AWT components?
