It shouldn't do that. Could you show us your code ? make sure you use the code tags.

Moving to GUI forum.

By "fluctuates" I presume you mean "flickers"?

Go into the API for whichever component you are painting on, and have a look at its constructors. You will probably find an overridden one with a boolean called doubleBuffered or something similar. Try putting "true" in that constructor. That might help.

Dear Campbell,

I am not using the buffer for painting.
I am drawing a bar graph on x and y axis..
The graph gets the axis values from user and draw the graph bars one by one...

When first bar appears that is well but when second to onwards bars appear,

The screen flickers due to repaint method...

My question is that:

How can i get rid of that flickering???

It isn't possible to guess what you might have done wrong from your description. To get better help sooner, post a SSCCE* that clearly demonstrates your problem.

If the area is large what your program is painting then use buffering as recommended before, or call repaint(Rectangle) to repaint only renewing area (if it aint the whole area)

which calls paintComponent(..)
which contains repaint()
which calls paintComponent(..)
which contains repaint()

do you now understand?

You can't call repaint() inside the paintComponent() method because repaint() calls paintComponent(). What you should do is either create a thread, either use a listener event.

I wrote you a quick program so you can understand:

This should clear things up.
