Hey, my question is, i had one main canvas to display playing cards and text at the bottom of the canvas. Now i have created one main JPanel containing 3 JPanels (dealer, player1 and player2) i want to draw the cards now onto each respective jpanels and have the text messages to appear in th respective jpanels. Do i create 3 seperate canvases or how do i do this? Thanks. DK.
