Hello forum, Vaironl here.

I believe this questions has been answered before, but I cannot find the answer.. weird.

I have a class which is called panel and extends a JPanel and a paint method.
For some reason my Jlabel is not appearing, I read common painting problems, and tried setting the JLabel to opaque... with no luck. any suggestions?

suggestion nr 1: show your code.
we can't really tell anything without having a look at it, now can we?

Sorry for that... I assumed it was just a straightforward problem.. but pardon me.

Here is the class that extends the Jpanel

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.MouseAdapter;
import java.awt.event.MouseEvent;
import java.awt.event.MouseListener;

public class Panel extends JPanel{
	/* all drawing methods, fields, labels, and GUI components will
	Placed inside of this panel	
	public Panel()
		JLabel label = new JLabel("Hello");
		label.setSize(40,40); label.setLocation(40, 20);
		addMouseListener(new MouseAdapter() { 
	          public void mousePressed(MouseEvent me) { 
	public void paint(Graphics g)
		g.fillRect(0, 0, getWidth(), getHeight());
		g.drawRect(0, 500, 250, 20);// Recipe's Name
		g.drawRect(0, 530, 250, 20);// Author's Name
		g.drawRect(0, 560, 250, 20);// Rating Value
		g.drawRect(0, 590, 250, 20);// Serving Size
		Graphics2D g2 = (Graphics2D) g;
		g2.setStroke(new BasicStroke(3));
		g2.drawRect(0, 40, 250, getHeight());  
		g2.drawRect(250, 700, getWidth(), getHeight());
