I would like the window to add a component after someone presses a button, how do I go about doing that? is the pain/repaint() method the best approach?

You can use the validate() method.
This is from the API for Container.
public void validate()
Validates this container and all of its subcomponents.
The validate method is used to cause a container to lay out its subcomponents again. It should be invoked when this container's subcomponents are modified (added to or removed from the container, or layout-related information changed) after the container has been displayed.
Overrides: validate in class Component
