A JFrame has a default BorderLayout, and a BorderLayout has 6 regions, to each of which only one component can be added.

If you want to add the button on top of the DaDrw, first give it an appropriate layout and then add the button to it.

If you want to add the button and the DaDrw to the frame, use the default BorderLayout with appropriate constraints, or set a layout of your choice.

luck, db
