If anyone could show me a sample/ example or link to reading that could help, please assist.
On my first try, I created my panel as a class extending JPanel.
I created an instance and added it to the frame simply enough.
I get trouble when trying to perform the same function via a JButton.
I'll post an example of what I have soon. I scrapped my first run as it became a mess and debugging was wasting more time than a rewrite.
