Hi, guys!
I'm trying to move a circle from one side of the screen to another...
It works if I put the code inside my main class.
But, if I have a button on the screen and push it, when the actionPerformed method get called it doesn't refresh the screen.
Why does it works outside the actionPerformed and doesn't inside??

Thank's!!

The event dispatch thread does one thing at a time.
Try starting the animation on another thread.
