Need to reliably repaint a container and its components

Hi all,

I have a container with GridLayout. I add and remove components from it, but some small problems with painting occur. If I then resize the whole frame, the problem vanishes. I wonder how the resizement of the frame solves the problem, what method is called?

I even had bigger problems, the components I added didn't even show, until I called (after the addition) the .doLayout method on the container.

.repaint is quite useless! Any suggestions?
