I cant seem to find a method that allows the program to know what "card" is currently being displayed.
Is there a trick for this or is there a method that i didnt find in the documentation?

i didnt even look in the Component class
I was looking in the cardlayout, layoutmanager(2)
as always once I get the answer it seems to make sense

Look at your question. You are asking whether the card is currently being displayed. That is you are trying to probe the propery of a card. Think object-oriented.
