Hello,
I have a component class that I have take from several threads I found on this site. I need to overlay a JProgressBar on the image that is loaded, and a JLabel so that I can provide text saying what the startup process is doing. I have tried to accomplish this using ZIndexing but it doesnt work. Also how do I statically set the X,Y positions of the ProgressBar and the Jlabel? Can someone tell me how to get the desired effect out of this code?

Worth 500 points.

        setLocation(screenSize.width/2 - (labelSize.width/2),

        setVisible(true);
        screenSize = null;
        labelSize = null;
  }

}

Here is exactly what you need:

It uses the glass pane.

Read more about the    setGlassPane(); method.
