Adding a JPanel Form

I have created a Desktop application in Netbeans 6.1 using Matisse. It consists of a JFrame which contains 4 JPanels including one called leftPanel1 So far life is easy.

Now I Create a new JPanel Form again using Matisse. Its called leftPanel2 Thats easy too.

Now, what I want to happen is that when a user selects a menu item, leftPanel1 is replaced by leftPanel2.

I want to add a mousereleased event to the menu item which effects this change, but I cant figure out how to change the JPanel in the JFrame.

create another panel, set as a cardLayout, add left1 and left2 to
the cardLayoutpanel, then show the one you want
