Importing Images to a Java frame

    [SOLVED] Importing Images to a Java frame

    Hey guys,

    I have a very simple java program. I opens a frame, and I want to be able to put a picture in the frame. How do I import a picture and set it as the background to the frame?

    Here is my simple program:

    import java.io.*;
    import java.awt.*;
    import java.awt.event.*;

    class demo extends Frame
    void setup()
    setLayout(new FlowLayout());

    Button ok = new Button(" OK ");


    public class window
    public static void main (String[] args)
    int width = 700, height = 134;

    demo frm = new demo();

    frm.setTitle("Logon Message");
    frm.setSize(width, height);

    so as you can see it is an extremely basic window, and I would like to import a graphic as the background to the window within the setup() method.

    Any help much appreciated, thanks!

    Create a Panel and call the drawImage method in its Graphics object.

    Use a Canvas with an overridden paint() method, or an ImageIcon.
