 setSize(200,200);
to
 setSize(200,300);
otherwise it is a circle)

In the above code I removed all NetBeans stuf and just added your NewPanel to container
(in Swing you needd to add to getContentPane(). not to JFrame itself):
   getContentPane().add(new NewPanel());


If you  want
to do it with NetBeans GUI manger you need to add your custom elenment (class NewPanel)
to the pallette, see these links:

If you use NetScaler you will want to see these guides. The NetScaler How To Guides show administrators how to get NetScaler up and configured by providing instructions for common scenarios and some not so common ones.

Is there any way I can use both NetBeans' generated code and

 getContentPane().add(new NewPanel());

Open in new window


?

Better go away from this Netbeans GUI designer and create the components yourself - then you'll not depend on them and will be more flexible

I think this part froom this link should help you to add this your siubclass of JPanle:
http://wiki.netbeans.org/FaqFormUsingCustomComponent

To use a Swing component subclass without instantiating it in the GUI builder

    Use the Swing component ancestor in the GUI builder (e.g. JTable).
    Select the component, go to Properties window, select Code tab, Custom Creation Code property.
    Invoke the editor and enter java code you'd like to have to instantiate the subclass. E.g.: new MyTable();
    Note you can also define a full anonymous innerclass here.
