ImagePanel

I want to create a graphic background Frame. So I derived a panel of my own from the Panel class, then
overrided the paint method to supply whatever the graphic is. There was 1 error in the following codes:  
Method drawimage(java.awt.Image, int, int, ImagePanel) not found in class java.awt.Graphics
                           g.drawimage(background,0,0,this);
Could you please tell me what the correct codes should be?
 
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.awt.image.*;
import java.net.*;

public class Frame1 extends Frame
{
 public Frame1()
 {
  //{{INIT_CONTROLS
  setLayout(null);
  setVisible(false);
  setSize(650,450);

  imagePanel1 = new ImagePanel();
  imagePanel1.setLayout(null);
  imagePanel1.setBounds(0,0,650,450);
  add(imagePanel1);
 
  Button1 = new Button(" ");
  Button1.setBounds(288,168,29,21);
  imagePanel1.add(Button1);
 
  //{{REGISTER_LISTENERS
  this.addWindowListener(new WindowAdapter(){
                  public void windowClosing(WindowEvent e){
                    System.exit(0);}
                });
 
 }
 
 static public void main(String args[])
 {
       (new Frame1()).setVisible(true);
 }
 
 //{{DECLARE_CONTROLS
 ImagePanel imagePanel1;
 Button Button1;
 
 }
 
 
class ImagePanel extends Panel
{
       String name = "bgrun3.gif";
       Image background = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getImage(name);

        public void paint(Graphics g)
        {
              g.drawimage(background,0,0,this);
              return;
         }
  }


One more favour, could you please tell me how I can make my system to work with ODBC MS Access database programming to work? When I open the "32bit ODBC" icon, I saw a tabbed dialog with a number of tabs, including "User DSN",  "System DSN", "File DSN", etc.  I alse found the MS Access 97 Database in "User DSN", What should I do the next?

Just make g.drawimage to g.drawImage  (note the uppercase "I")

For the second part of your question :

if you open 32 bit odbc you will find several tabs

DSN means Data Source Name , The User DSN means these will be specific to the user who has logged in on that machine. System DSN means these will appear if any user is logged in , so it is better to create System DSNs .

For creating a MS Access DSN follow the following steps
1. Select System DSN tab
2. Click on the add button
3. You will find a list of ODBC drivers(if installed )
4. Select Microsoft Access and click Finish
5. You will get a dialog , in the "Data Source Name" enter the name you want to call it (this is the name you will have to specify in your java program while doing a JDBC connection)
6. Click the Select button and you will get a File Dialog , select the .mdb file which has your Database. If you do not find the .mdb file you can do a find on Explorer to find *.mdb file.
7. Your DSN is now set and you can use this to connect to Access from a Java program. (Northwind.mdb is a sample installed by MS Access of Office 97)
5.
