Repaint Problem

Basically I have two componets that extend JPanel.  One is for graphs (called GraphPanel)and the other is a drop down container (called SelectionPanel).  When I resize the applet (running with appletviewer) the only time the SelectionPanel repaints itself is when I click on it.

How can I set this up so that it repaints on resize ?

Don't mix swing conponents and AWT compents. if you didn't mix them, post more code.

u can use validate() on ur container

....., or repaint()&updateUI(), or implement a event listener for window events and call this methods. What Layout did you use ? Did you ? Because at the usage of any default Layout, the update is made automatically.
