hi,i have a unique problem.actually i wish to put a polarchart developed using JFreechart on the frame that already has components placed on it.What i want to do is to make the particular component overlap the polarchart.

How can i do so?
i thought of creating the polar chart using panel and then placing the above mentioned component on the panel therby placing the entire panel on the Jframe.

Do you want to see both of them at the same time or one at a time?

i tried doing that but at a time only one component is visible.I want to place the component object exactly in the centre of the chart.

but just the chart appears.

here's the code snippet

JPanel mainpanel=new JPanel();
	final JPanel main = new JPanel(new BorderLayout());
        final JPanel optionsPanel = new JPanel();
 	cirarc12 c2=new cirarc12();//the component neede to be place don the top
optionsPanel.add(c2,BorderLayout.CENTER);
	main.add(chartPanel, BorderLayout.CENTER);
        //main.add(c2,BorderLayout.CENTER);
     	mainpanel.add(main);
	mainpanel.add(optionsPanel,BorderLayout.CENTER);

I think i'm going wrong with the layout managers.please help..

Use NORTH attribute.

mainpanel.add(main,BorderLayout.NORTH);
mainpanel.add(optionsPanel,BorderLayout.CENTER);

Use NORTH attribute.

mainpanel.add(main,BorderLayout.NORTH);
mainpanel.add(optionsPanel,BorderLayout.CENTER);

Doing that is still not working...i can only see the chart....may be i shouldn't be using BorderLayout here.

          top.add(new JButton("Add"));
          top.add(new JButton("Add"));
          getContentPane().add(top,BorderLayout.NORTH); 
          getContentPane().add(cen,BorderLayout.CENTER); 
          
          setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
