Any ideas guys?
Thank you.

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:

this is how it looks like
(changed
 setSize(200,200);
to
 setSize(200,300);
otherwise it is a circle)

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

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

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

Open in new window


?
I just tried this but I see no oval.

look at my post ID: 37748392 and recommendations how to do it in the links there

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.
