Test it and if it gives you a runtime error
it is because the int ncols, nrows; doesnt not have any values yet.

So you need to specify the value like :

int ncols=2, nrows=2;

Hope that helps . . .

When creating the EightPointBlocks instance

          frame.getContentPane().add(new EightPointBlocks());

 should be (for instance):

          frame.getContentPane().add(new EightPointBlocks(2,4));

Yes of course my friend I'm very sorry I was busy but dont worry I'll send you e-mails.
I have an e-mail in yahoo but it contains a lot of spams and I dont know how to fix it.

You know friend I've always wanted to be a real Java Programmer but I have'nt
got any chance to prove it.

I applied for one but they are still reviewing it. How I wish I could be a real
programmer instead of being a tech support.

Thanks for your time . . .
