I have a bit of a problem, I am trying to add some JButtons into a JPanel from a method call that is triggered by a buttons actionlistener, the problem i have got is when it comes to adding the button it does not show on the JPanel but if i get the component count of the JPanel it shows it as being there. I am using Netbeans 6.5 and using a FlowLayout for my JPanel, this is what i have
in my first JPanel that i have i add buttons to it when the JPanel is created and this works fine
As you can see i created my own actionlistener for these buttons which i attach to the buttons and this is what it looks like
In my actionlistener i then call a few methods that are in the PosTeller class as this is where my JPanel sits, here are the methods
The problem is when it gets to the addToCatPane() and i create the buttons to add to the productsPane absolutly nothing happens, nothing gets displayed!! but the component count shows that there are components there, i have called rePaint() reValidate() inValidate() etc etc and nothing seems to make them display....
