I'm creating a chess board, and I want to be able to display the chess pieces (.gif's) on the squares. I'm extending a JPanel and drawing all the squares. Is there a way to create a transparent panel on top of that panel so I'll be able to use the chessboard as the background and align the pieces in the correct locations? Any suggestions would help thanks.

If you call setOpaque( false ) on the upper panel you will be able to see the panel under it...

Im currently working on a chess program. Anyways I just created a custom panel and overriden the painComponent method. Something like this
public class BoardPanel extends JPanel{
public void paintComponent(Graphics g){
super.paintComponent(g);
g.drawImage(Board,0,0,this);
//Add for loop to draw image for each square
g.drawImage(Piece[Col][Row],add math to align piece x, and y);
}

}
 
So you made a portal in time and started grabbing people. This tiny ad thinks that's rude:
