Dear all, I want to apply a image to the background of a JPanel. The JPanel is having 5 Buttons on it arranged vertically in a null layout. I tried applying a image to it by using g.drawImage in the paintComponent. It drew the image but the image was not properly distorted. It was not displayed in parts where there was a button on the JPanel. Can anybody please tell me how to display an image properly behind the buttons on a JPanel. Please this is URGENT. Thanks
Hi Anirban, I may be wrong, but I couldn't find any methods in the java docs that set the background of a JPanel to a graphic image, inherited methods or otherwise. I did find methods which let you add a graphic image to either a JLabel,(a Swing component) or a JFrame, (an awt component). Would either of these work for you?

Dear Leo, Thanks for your reply, but that will not work, as we cannot add any components to the frame or JLabel directly.
Take a look at my brief article "Displaying Background Images with Swing" at http://www.conceptgo.com/articles/DisplayBackground.html off conceptGO's community page. I think it will give you the information you need, although I'm a little confused by your statement "It was not displayed in parts where there was a button on the JPanel."
