i m writing a java applet that accepts 4 parameters to draw a rectangle - x, y, width, height

my problem is, i don't know how to call it in another method - square of asterisks,

it needs a variable Graphics g to be supplied, but i don't know where to give this "g" variable!



here is the problem, how to initialize Graphics g variable?

By calling that method from an appropriate painting method override. Here's where to learn more about that: Performing Custom Painting

Edit: Moving this thread to the GUIs section.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
