Dear Expert,
   I got a problem and here is the complete details of the problem.
   I have a Jwindow and in that i will show some drawings.
Then i have a JPanel over it and in that panel i will do some animation.
  Then i have a JInternalFrame and which has some queries regarding the animation.

My problem is :
    Then animation stuff and the JInternalFrame  are overlapped and hence i am not able to show the JInternalFrame completely. I can move the JInternalFrame to some other location, but i don't want it.

My need is :
     Some drawings/pictures in the bottom most layer. Then the animation over it and then the JInternal frame as the top-most layer.

    Any suggestion or solution ???

Herewith i have attached the code also.

To get the JInternalFrame click on the JWindow and then resize the JInternalFrame. ( I don't know why JInternalFrame's size is so big).

Kind Regards,
Prem.

Code:

package test;

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.util.*;

public class LastPanel extends JWindow
{
     private static Dimension _dimension = null;
     
     public LastPanel( Dimension d)
     {
          _dimension = d;
     }
     public void paint (Graphics g)
     {
          g.setColor( Color.black);
          g.fillRect( 0, 0, _dimension.width, _dimension.height);
          g.setColor( Color.blue);
          g.fillRect( 100, 100, _dimension.width-200, _dimension.height-200);
     }
     
     public static void main( String args[])
     {
          Toolkit tk = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit();
          LastPanel lp = new LastPanel( tk.getScreenSize());
          lp.setBounds( 0, 0, tk.getScreenSize().width, tk.getScreenSize().height);
         
          JLayeredPane layeredPane = lp.getLayeredPane();

          JInternalFrame jif = new JInternalFrame( "Test", true,     true,     true,      true);
                                                                  //resizable, closable, maximizable,iconifiable
        jif.setDefaultCloseOperation( WindowConstants.DISPOSE_ON_CLOSE);
          jif.getContentPane().add( new JLabel( "Label1"));
          jif.setBounds( 10, 15, 100, 100);
          jif.pack();
          jif.setVisible( true);
          jif.moveToFront();

          AnimationPanel ap = new AnimationPanel();
          ap.setBounds( 0, 0, tk.getScreenSize().width, tk.getScreenSize().height);
          layeredPane.add( ap, layeredPane.lowestLayer()+1);
     
          lp.getContentPane().add( jif);
         
          lp.setVisible( true);
     }
     
     public static class AnimationPanel extends JPanel
     {
          private java.util.Timer _timer = null;
          private int _blink = 0;
         
          public AnimationPanel()
          {
               AnimationThread at = new AnimationThread();
               _timer = new java.util.Timer();
               _timer.scheduleAtFixedRate( at, 0, 500);    
               System.out.println( " Thread created ... ");
          }
         
          public void paintComponent( Graphics g)
          {
               if ( _blink == 1)
               {
                    g.setColor( Color.white);
                    _blink = 0;
               }
               else
               {
                    g.setColor( Color.black);
                    _blink = 1;
               }
               Toolkit tk = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit();    
               g.fillRect( tk.getScreenSize().width/2-100, tk.getScreenSize().height/2-100, 200, 200);
          }
         
          private class AnimationThread extends TimerTask
          {
         
               public void run()
               {
                    Toolkit tk = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit();
                    paintImmediately( tk.getScreenSize().width/2-100, tk.getScreenSize().height/2-100, 200, 200);
               }
               
          }
     }
     
}

Hello!

If you want I can email to you a nice example of two images overlapping each other (or something like that). It uses the JLayeredPane class. Instead of images you can place what object you want.

My email is rui.vale@ent.efacec.pt

Feel free to contact me!


Hope it helps!
