Is there a way to set the Background of an applet with an image? I imagine there is, I just can't figure it out. I'd appreciate any help.

Hi Sean!
Here is a very simple example:

Assuming that you have an image named "sample.jpg" in the same directory as your class file, this applet will load the image, paint it in the background, then draw the button on top of it. Obviously, it will need to be modified to do anything useful. But it gets the general idea across. Hope this helps.

Stephanie,
Thanks for your help. It seems pretty simple. I should have just attempted it myself. I was afraid that only one of the two objects would appear, but I guess I'm wrong. Thanks again.
