I need absolute positioning here and ive set the bounds for a new jlabel and subsequently "add"ed it. it adds it perfectly in the right spot, but additionally draws one at the top centre as if i didnt specify any bounds.
I think it has something to with the repainting. sometimes, it draws only one at the top, sometimes two, sometimes three. and when i resize it perpetually continues to draw more labels.
whats going on? this is all taking place in my overridden paintComponent method which is quite large to paste here.
thanks so much!
*EDIT* this happens in a loop actually. is that cool?
