Hi,
    I would like to know if there's a way to draw an "X' on a JButton object ? I'm working on a Maze program that displays 'X' 's  on the solution path. Thanks!

If setting the text as i mentioned doesn't look right, you can change the font:

b.setFont(new Font("sanserif", Font.BOLD, 22));

Hi,
  Is there a way to invoke it on an object. I have a double array object  JButton box[x][y] (x = row, y = col). I want to write a method to draw the 'X' on that Jbutton object. Thanks

//text based
for(int i=0;i<row.i++)
{
          for(int j=0;j<col;j++)
         {
             jb[i][j]=new  JButton("X");

          }
}


//Image  based
for(int i=0;i<row.i++)
{
          for(int j=0;j<col;j++)
         {
            jb[i][j]=new JButton("", new ImageIcon(new Image("X.bmp")));// or u can use GIF/JPeg

          }
}

//If you want to display text use the following code
int row=10;
int col=10;
JButton box[row][col];
for(int x=0;x<row;x++)
{
          for(int y=0;y<col;y++)
         {
             box[x][y]=new  JButton("X");
          }
}


// If you want to display image

for(int x=0;x<row;x++)
{
          for(int y=0;y<col;y++)
         {
             box[x][y]=new  JButton("", new ImageIcon(new Image("X.bmp
          }
}

This may reach your requirement
Thanks

The answer is already given, so I'd say split points among all participants.
