Hey guys,

When I start my applet with appletviewer, I get a white window saying "Hello".
When I make my applet window bigger, I get a blue/grey window that is blank.
When I make my applet window smaller, I get a blue/grey window that says "Hello".

What is the reason for this strange behaviour? I simply want "Hello" to be always positioned in the middle of the screen.

Here is my code:


Thanks for any suggestions you may have...

John

JApplet's content pane is painted on the JApplet. http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/14painting/index.html

Do read the link above, but I'll summarize by saying that in Swing (dealing with any component whose name starts with a J) you never override paint(Graphics) but rather only paintComponent(Graphics), and even then, always call super.paintComponent(). Overriding "paint()" on a JApplet makes all kinds of bad things happen!
