I'm basically trying to move cards left or right based on their starting location. I have some logic which selects two cards (JLabels) and passes them to this method. After each movement (setBounds()), I try and refresh to show their current position but it doesn't happen. Any ideas?

Two suggestions... call validate() on the component that holds the card JLabels. And make sure that you are using setLayout( null ) on the parent component, otherwise setBounds() won't work.

If I set the layout method to null, nothing shows up in my JFrame. I'm using setBounds all over the place in this and it works, I just can't get it to refresh after each loop.
I tried calling the validate method, but that didn't work either.
Here is my entire Layout class: (the moveCards method is at the very bottom)

I fixed this problem, I just needed to put the movement into a thread of its own.
