Greetings All,
I'm having some problems getting the background color to change.


I have a guiClass that extends JFrame and implements ActionListener (once "implements" was spelled correctly). my main program basically just makes a guiClass object.


i have been trying to use setBackground(Color.red); but it is not working. i tried this.setBackground(Color.red) but it didn't work.

I have tried setting the background color in the constructor as well as in a method. Is it something do with JFrame? Am I using the wrong method? any hints as to how I can find out?

this is the last program for a Java class I'm taking at school. I didn't post all my code, since its for a class. I've been able to figure out the rest of the program on my own.

Try setting the background of the frame's content pane instead.

This is interesting...so, other methods do not delegate like add() was changed...
