I am drawing strings on a JPanel after I draw the image of a JPG. The paint component method is

I first draw the image of the JPG and this is working; then I call drawOnGlassPane to draw entered strings. Initially, I was drawing on the glass pane of the parent but since it didn't work I tried the graphics of the JPanel

The line "graphics.drawString(enteredText, xCoordinate, yCoordinate);" is being executed.

I doubt it is the problem but you should not be using drawImmediately inside the paintComponent(() method.

Post your SSCCE that demonstrates the problem.

Thanks Rob. No that's not the problem. It is a weird problem with Eclipse or MyEclipse, because the code works fine in another workspace or project. I am writing to them. I DON'T KNOW HOW TO SET THIS TO RESOLVED.

Even if it's not *the* problem, it most certainly is *a* problem.

To repeat what Rob said: You should not be using drawImmediately(...) inside the paintComponent(...) method
