Sorry about the other two threads, It simply cut off the contents halfway, it wouldn't display the rest!

I'll try and express my problem more concisely.

I have invented a new component Histogram which extends JComponent.

I have an array[] of histogram objects.

I'm displaying a array[0] in a pane on my GUI, and I have a method update() which puts a new, different Histogram object in array[0]. I want the GUI to automatically reflect this change by displaying the new array[0] component instead of the old one.

How do I do this?

Thanks!

Formulated even better:

Is there any way to have a component (1) that just holds a reference to another component (2) so that I can change 2 to something else and called component1.setRef(another component) and thereby add component1 to the interface once and change the displayed component by calling component1.setRef(another component)?
