no paint() ???

I've created a new extension of the JComponent class and paint() isn't being called when it's run and repaint() doesn't do anything either. Any suggestions? I'll put in the code if someone feels like taking a look.

I suggest you move your c.add( ... ) to before you call the frame.setVisible().

Thanks, but I already figured that one out by myself. It all works now.
I agree. Here's the link:
