Use a JLabel with an ImageIcon, or override paintComponent to draw the image (don't forget to call super.paintComponent!)

I tried first approach ..

ImageIcon icon = new ImageIcon("C:\\Documents and Settings\\255203\\Desktop\\Image\\New Folder\\final2.png");
JLabel label = new JLabel(icon);
jPanel1.add(label);

But this is not working

Could you please give sum sample code regarding second approach ...



Thanks,

What's not working? Is the image path correct? What LayoutManager are you using? ItDoesntWorkIsUseless. TellTheDetails.

Try reading the JLabel API where you will find a link to the Swing tutorial in "How to Use Labels" which contains a working example.

The tutorial also contains a section on "How to Use Icons" which goes into more detail about how Swing finds the image.

You can also read the section on "Custom Painting" for more help with suggestion 2, but first you should master suggestion 1.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
