I have a JFrame with a JLayeredPane. On the first layer there is a table, then above it there is black transparent layer that allows me options and what-not.
I animate the arrival of this transparent layer. However when I do this the panel seems to loose it's transparency, that is until I interact with the base layer, THEN I see through the transparent layer again.
Sometimes, when I start interacting with the textfield or button on the transparent level, it starts displaying pieces and bits of the lower layer on the Transparent layer.
Am I missing the need to repaint something or....I'm not even sure. Why is there this visual bug please?
