Traffic Light -- Very Simple

Hi, not to sure how I can get this code working. The teacher wants us to use the Circle class that was in the book even though we don't need all of it's functionality but I'm not sure how to get it to paint the circles from within the switch statment in the TrafficLightPanel class. Just need some guidance on this one. Thanks

Add a new member valiable referencing the current light, and paint that light in paintComponent() (instead of the red one).

Then in your switch change which laight is current, and call repaint().
