This button will only appear if you move your mouse over it. See here:

You hava to move the mouse around the top left

my applet is this

package Main;

public class Main extends Applet {

@Override

    setLayout(null);
    addlistener = new buttonhandler();
    add = new AddButton("AddSongs", 0, 0, 40, 40);
    add.setBounds(50, 90, 40, 40);
    repaint(50, 90, 40, 40);
    add(add);
    add.addActionListener(addlistener);
}



    @Override

}
private static class buttonhandler implements ActionListener {

My button is this:

In class Main implement MouseMotionListener interface
Check, where mouse is inside the Rectangle(50, 90, 40, 40)
Make button visible depending on this value

No, I don't want it to appear on mousemotion. I want it to appear automatically...

I added this:

g.drawRect(50, 90, 40, 40);

to the main method to show you where the button is. I also updated the site. You have probably noticed that it only appears when you mouse over it... I want it to appear on startup! (as soon as the button object is constructed) but it WON'T go! I don't want it to be delayed... That is what I have been trying to do without delay (haha, what a lame play on words by me:) )


Thanks for helping,
Mitch

Sweet! thanks for the super.paint(g); solution!!!
@Override

    }

Sweet! Thanks for the intense solution! How does it work? I rooted around the applets family tree and the actual paint() method dated back to the Container class. I looked at the code for paint() and wasn't able to figure out what it does!:$ Could you please tell me?

Awesome, Thanks,
Mitch
