Keeping the background when painting a JPanel
Posted on 1999-01-13
I've derived a class from JPanel, and I want to draw in it and keep its background black, not gray. Calling
in the constructor works fine if I don't override paint(). But if I do override paint(), the background color disappears and I can't figure out how to just keep it around and draw over it. Short of simply drawing a big rectangle over the whole panel, what should I be doing to keep the background color?
