    Question paintComponent(Graphics g)

    Hi all,

    Apologies, I can't show any code, because I don't have any code, all I have is a thought that has been bugging me.

    How do I check the value of properties of 'g' in an, say outer class ?

    What you are asking is pretty meaningless. Without an example, or at least a better description, there are anywhere from zero to infinity different ways to accomplish your goal.

    It would not take very long to throw together a short program (in SSCCE form) that tests exactly what you're talking about- and you'd probably be able to figure it out on your own.
