JFrame not displaying text.

I have a JFrame where I'm displaying some simple text information in a JPanel. However, when the application starts up the text is not displayed until I resize the frame. I imagine I'm initializing the frame incorrectly but is there something obvious that I'm not doing?

Example:


The method call builds a JPanel with the text to be displayed.

Thanks for the help.

If you're adding these components after the JFrame has already appeared on the screen, then you need to call validate() on the JFrame to get its contents to appear. Alternatively, you can set the whole GUI up before you call setVisible on the JFrame.
