When 2 objects are placed in the same cooridinates,
one is covered by another. Is there any way to
send this object to the front?

If the objects are Panel, what should I call?
Actually, I'm talking about Component in general.

If you're talking about Images, you can call repaint () and make sure the image is drawn at the end:

drawImage(anImage,x,y)
drawImage(ImageOnTop,x,y)

The second to drawImage will place ImageOnTop in front of the other image. Maybe a cheap solution, but it works for me...
