Well as far as i know there is nothing like JCanvas for swings....i read somewhere that Jpanel can be considered to be the Canvas of Swings....How true is that???? :?:

better than canvas.... If you want something just to draw on, then override the paint method.

Greetings:
Check this link, almost at the bottom there is class named DrawingPanel, they extend JPanel to behave as canvas, hope that helps :cheesy:
