Just override the paintComponent method and paint your image. You'll also need to ensure that your cell renderers are transparent.

objects,
Can you please be more specific:
I have a file "background.gif" - I want it to be the background of a JTree.
Now step by step what do I have to do?
Thanks!

Override JTree and add the following method:

public void paintComponent(Graphics g)
{
   g.drawImage(image, 0, 0, this);
   super.paintComponent(g);
}

How?
Sorry, if it's a silly question, but I've never used cell
renderers before.
Thanks again!
