HI,
I have a frame with a menu. Now just below the menu i have a JButton. My problem is that when i click on the menu, i get my menuitems. But unfortunately, the menuitem is almost at the same position as the JButton. But instead of the JMenuItem appearing in front of the JButton, i get the JButton in front of JMenuItem . Thus my JMenuItem is partially hidden bu the JButton. How do i overcome this. What i want is when i click on the menu, the menuitem should come over the JButton.
I hope u guys help me out.
Regards
Saj

hi,
if you place the button in the default layer, the menu would cover the button as it is painted in another layer (above the default one). (see the API for JRootPane, and the swing tutorial for detailed information.)
have you added the button this way?:
JFrame f = new JFrame();
Container content = f.getContentPane();
content.setLayout(new BorderLayout()); //or whatever layout
content.add(new JButton("under menu"), BorderLayout.NORTH);
JMenuBar bar = new JMenuBar();
// configure menubar
f.setJMenuBar(bar);
