"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

For each component separately..try doing a setBackGround
to whatever color you want instead of the wallpaper?

In fact, I want to set the background with an image instead of background color.
Anyway, thank for your kind responds.

Here is an applet I grabbed somewhere to do tiled background:
I haven't personally used it so I cant ensure that it works but
give it a shot.

import java.awt.*;
import java.applet.Applet;

public class ExtendedPanel extends Applet {
      Image backgroundImage = null;

      // applet init() - recieve and load background image
      public void init() {
            backgroundImage = getImage(getDocumentBase().getParameter("BGImage"));
      }

      // applet update() - dont clear, paint over it
      public void update( Graphics g) {
            paint(g);
      }

      // applet paint() - paint applet
      public void paint(Graphics g) {
            if(backgroundImage != null) {
                  int x_offset = 0, y_offset = 0;
                  while(y_offset<this.size().height) {
                        x_offset = 0;
                        while(x_offset<this.size().width) {
                              g.drawImage(backgroundImage, x_offset, y_offset, this);
                              x_offset=x_offset+backgroundImage.getWidth(null);
                        }
                        y_offset=y_offset+backgroundImage.getHeight(null);
                  }
            } else {
                  g.clearRect(0, 0, this.size().width, this.size().height);
            }
      }
}


Best of luck with this.
