I have a class which has inherited a JPanel.  This JPanel has every thing I need (ex: TextareaBoxes, Dropdowns, etc).

I would like to put the following code inside the inherited JPanel.  How can that be done?
public class myClass extends thisClass
{
....
public void customPnl();
{
button1                      = new JRadioButton(temp.getString("button1"), true);
button2                      = new JRadioButton(temp.getString("button2r"));
sLbl                           = new JLabel(temp.getString("subject"));
GridBagLayout layout   = new GridBagLayout();
GridBagConstraints c   = new GridBagConstraints();
}
public void Make()  //This function creates the whole UI
{
JPanel Pnl = buildPnl();
setLayout(new BorderLayout());

JPanel pnl2 = buildPnl2();
add(buildPnl(), BorderLayout.NORTH);

JPanel pnl3 = new JPanel(new BorderLayout());
pnl3.add(pnl2, BorderLayout.CENTER);

add(pnl3, BorderLayout.NORTH);
add(buildPnl(), BorderLayout.NORTH);
add(pnl3, BorderLayout.CENTER);
}
}

...Currently only the inherited class's UI is showing up.  How can I put the radiobuttons from the function customPnl()?

No, this will not work, because Make() is used in the main function to make the Panels and grids.  I need something in the Make() or customPnl() which will give me the results.

Thanks.

Here is the heirarchy of classes.

I need to use a function5 which is in class1.  Class2 inherits Class1.  Class3 inherits Class2.
Function5 needs to be implemented in class3.

Class1
   |
   ---Class2
          |
          ---Class3

Does Class2 have a function5 method in there? Then you can simply call it by doing super.function5(). If you need to override it then do something like:

public void function5()
{
   super.function5();
   /// your implementation here.
}
