Filling polygons.

Using the Graphics class I am drawing some polygons. Some of these I fill. The polygons are to be drawn with black and I want to fill them with a different color. Problem now is along one boundary line in the polygon, the bounding line will "disappear in steps" after filling with different color. The boundary will now have color alternating between black which the polygon was drawn with and the filling color. This makes it look like a "broken" polygon with incomplete boundary. How can this be fixed ? Here is an attempt to illustrate how it look: ______......_____......_____ where .... is the filling color.

Ok. I thought I could not fill a polygon untill it was frawn ! Filling the polygon before drawing it with a color different from the fill color solves this.
