first i initialise the onscreen frame when the program starts and then copy the empty frame buffer



then i write all my graphics to the buffer frame in my draw() method at the end of which the buffer frame is copied to the onscreen frame.



but then if i set frame to = buffer, wont it become invisible too, so i need to reapply visibility which causes the frame to flash between visible and invisible.

I feel like i'm doing it completely wrong, any suggestions for this newb?

buffer and frame both refer to the same JFrame object.
