I understand how I sized the Ovel,, >> int width = getSize().width - 100;, I have tried all different combonations to get getSize() to talk to Arc as well, but no go.


class Circle extends JPanel {
     public void paintComponent(Graphics g) {
            Graphics cir = (Graphics) g;
            cir.setColor(Color.red);
            Graphics cira = (Graphics) g;
            
              //cir.fillOval(Color.blue)
             //cir.setColor(Color.blue);
    FlowLayout bar = new FlowLayout();
          int x = 55;
          int y = 55;
               int xa = 55;
          int ya = 55;
             
          int width = getSize().width - 100;
          int height = getSize().height - 100;
             
               int diameter = Math.min(width, height);
            //cira.fillArc(xa, ya, width, height);
            
          //int diameter = Math.min(width, height);
         cir.fillOval(x, y,diameter,diameter);
             
              cira.setColor(Color.blue);
               cira.fillArc (100, 110, 50, 75, 45, 215);

Look at this page:

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/awt/Graphics.html
(more info at: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/awt/Graphics.html#fillArc(int,%20int,%20int,%20int,%20int,%20int) )

It tells you how to call fillArc on a Graphics object:

fillArc(int x, int y, int width, int height, int startAngle, int arcAngle);

You have to supply 2 extra parameters for the visible part of the arc (since an arc is a part of a oval)

I tried the new entries also in different combos, (lower case, uppercase),but no go. I am probably makeing it more complicated then it is, Filling the arc is no problem ,setting the size has me confused

class Circle extends JPanel {
     public void paintComponent(Graphics g) {
            Graphics cir = (Graphics) g;
            cir.setColor(Color.red);
            Graphics cira = (Graphics) g;
            
              //cir.fillOval(Color.blue)
             //cir.setColor(Color.blue);
    FlowLayout bar = new FlowLayout();
          int x = 55;
          int y = 55;
               int xa = 55;
          int ya = 55;
             
          int width = getSize().width - 100;
          int height = getSize().height - 100;
             
              int Arcwidth=getSize().Arcwidth - 100;
           int Archeight=getSize().Archeight - 100;
               
               int diameter = Math.min(Arcwidth,Archeight);
               int diameter = Math.min(width, height);
            //cira.fillArc(xa, ya, width, height);
            
          //int diameter = Math.min(width, height);
         cir.fillOval(x, y,diameter,diameter);
             
              cira.setColor(Color.blue);
               cira.fillArc (100, 110, 50, 75, 45, 215);
             
     }
}

Ok, you are messing things up now. I have no idea what you are trying to achieve, but here comes some corrected code (with comments):

//Class declaration
class Circle extends JPanel {
     
     //Paint method
     //g is a variable pointing to a graphics object
     //this is a variable pointing to the current object
     public void paintComponent(Graphics g) {
          //set offset position
          int x = 55;
          int y = 55;

          //get size of the panel and substract 100
          int width = this.getWidth() - 100;
          int height = this.getHeight() - 100;
             
          //take smallest size as diameter
          int diameter = Math.min(width, height);

          //paint red oval
          g.setColor(Color.RED);
          g.fillOval(x, y, diameter, diameter);

          //paint blue arc          
          g.setColor(Color.BLUE);
          g.fillArc (x, y, diameter, diameter, 45, 215);
     }
}
}

This should work (did not test, though). You might have to comment the painting of one of the two shapes to make the other visible, since they overlap.

Good luck.
