I want to display an image using swing. How do I add the image to a jpanel or jframe? I've tried finding a way to do it with Image and ImageIcon with no success. A link to the right information would be fine.

here's a post from a couple of days ago, with a link to the FAQ on this,
also with query re missing call - include the line
super.paintComponent(g);
as the first line in paintComponent()

edit:
perhaps you just need to use a JLabel, which takes an icon as a parameter

First of all, I am am very new in using Swing components and I am learning under fire. You recommedation works for 1.4 JDK. Is there a different way for JDK 1.3? I am having a similar problem with the same subject, but in JDK 1.3. I do not have the ImageIO class available to me. My problem is simple, the images are not displaying.



Thanks for any suggestions.

Russ
