    Default JLabel image?

    Im trying to draw an image using JLabel.

    heres my code
    private JLabel title = new JLabel(new ImageIcon("banner.png"));

    I am calling it later on
    funcpanel.add(title);

    But the image is never drawn. I have it in the proper directory why is it not drawing?

    Lots of reasons. Your 2 lines of code are not enough to say which one.
    Have to tested that the program is finding the image? Use a File object with the path to the image and print its absolute path and check if the printed path is where the image is.
