JPanel and text

I have a MyClass that extends Jpanel and it only contains one private instance variable(text) of String type.

there is a constructor :

public MyClass()
{
text = "";
}

and a paintComponent method

// paintComponent to be done in (a)
public void paintComponent(Graphics g)
{
super.paintComponent(g);

g.drawString(text, 10, 10);

}

that draws the string in th JPanel.

I want to create a void setText(String s) method that will accept a string and then it will update the text instance variable but it will also draw the text in the JPanel.

Any ideas?

Thank you very much!
