Hi Everyone,

I am a student and I have been asked to make a program to create business cards. At the moment I have made a fully working application with file IO. The program basicly takes any input into the text fields and displays them on a business card template. Also it is necessary for the program to put a logo onto the business card by means of selection boxes. I already have written methods for drawing the logos, at the moment they are seperate applets. On my application I have included seletion boxes but at the moment they are tied to a String array so when the selection is made the strings: "Logo1", "Logo2", and "logo3" are displayed on the card rather than the Graphical logos drawn in the applets I have previously written. Can anyone suggest a way that I can tie the selection boxes to the logos so that they are displayed on the screen, Even if i have to cut and paste the methods into my new application code. I just need some help doing it.

Oh by the way here is the code i am using so far: Please can anyone help I have been sitting at the computer scratching my head all day. A forum really is my last resort so any help would be greatly appreciated.

instead of having the logos be drawn in the app. have the user draw it somewhere else and allow them to insert any image ontop of the template.
