problem with applet getting covered up by another screen

Hi,
   I have an applet to also gets inputs from the command line screen. Whenever I move the command line screen, it just repaints or erases a portion of the applet. Is there any way to keep the applet frozen after it has been drawn? thanks!

Hi azcalv,

That can happen for several reasons. One common mistake is to not put "super.paint(g);" at the beggining of all your paint methods.

Can you post your code?

all my paint components are in the paint method. If I move the screen, it'll redraw the components or erase one part. Just wondering if there's a way to not repaint when something interrupts the screen.

Can you paste all or part of your paint method so I can see it? There is essentially no way to prevent a repaint when something interrupts the screen, this is part of the operating system and  virtual machine functionality.
