I have a Swing GUI application using Swing Menus.  When I click on the main menu bar the menu items on the bottom disappear behind the JPanel that is directly below?  How do I fix this?

Thanks,
Dave

If the drop down menu going behind the JPanel or the info on the JPanel turning gray where the drop down menu opened? If it's the first one we will need to see some code. If it iis the second one all you have to do is refresh the JPanel via repaint or reintialize.

Cheers,
Ricky

I've mentioned in your other Q that the problem is inconsistency between AWT and SWING components
