    Default JFrame Menu Screen(For my game)?

    Hey, i am trying to make a start up menu for my game although im not sure how i do thing exactly. A idea which i had, was that i could make a Start up screen with paint with a start button although the problem that i have found with this idea is that...I cant add a action for listener for a Image (drawImage to draw 'start' button), although i suspect somthing to do with Rectangles and bounds are too do with this...

    Another problem i have is that im not sure how i can start the game from no where (if u know wat i mean?)...on my current games, i just have a JFrame which adds the JPanel on the main method, then everything goes from there...

    Well, somthing that i did to test it out myself was.. I made a blank JPanel which gets added to the JFrame on the main method, then i made it so when mouseCicked, the second JPanel gets added to the Frame class...

    (so like.. Frame f = new Frame(); (Frame.class has JFrame), then f.add(new Board()), and Board is the game starting class..)...

    Although this isnt working, it just stays on the ucrrent JPanel and the game doesnt start...


    So if anyone can hekp, thanks in advance!!!
