hi all,
I am confronted with a problem of drawing line between 2 JButtons in an applet. Could anyone help me as to how to do this !! I am using GridBagLayout to lay JButtons on the container.

The easiest way to do this would be to override paintComponent( Graphics g ) on the JPanel (or other container) you are adding the buttons to, and draw the line using the g.drawLine( x1, y1, x2, y2 ) method. You should calculate the value of x1 and y1 from the location of one button, and x2 and y2 from the location of the other button.
