hello ,
i'm trying to make a small game ,
i never done this before and got mixed up in the menus
i tried to make a background image and it worked
now i'm trying to put a jbutton on top of the background picture
and it won't show the button i'm guessing it's not on top
any ideas how to solve it ?

here's what i did to get the background image ( the rest is mostly netbeans auto)



thanks to all helpers

another way is to use a Jpanel to paint the image as its background, then add components as normal

here's a very simple demo
(the BackgroundPanel class is from this forum's FAQ (main page))

and in the exception it's saying

java.net.MalformedURLException: no protocol: images/c.gif

In your original code you where using "image/c.jpg". Maybe the message is saying it can't find the "c.gif"?

go back to my demo code and run it again, replacing *all* occurrences of "Test.gif" with
"images\\c.jpg"
not
"images/c.jpg"

remember it's *all* occurrences
