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?

        getContentPane().add(l, BorderLayout.CENTER);
        //getContentPane().add(progress);
        pack();
        Dimension screenSize =
          Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize();
        Dimension labelSize = l.getPreferredSize();
        setLocation(screenSize.width/2 - (labelSize.width/2),
                    screenSize.height/2 - (labelSize.height/2));
        setVisible(true);
        screenSize = null;
        labelSize = null;
  }
 
  void closeSplash()
  {
      setVisible(false);
      dispose();
  }
}

Here is exactly what you need:

It uses the glass pane.

Read more about the    setGlassPane(); method.
