    Default ChessBoardView with JLabel squares doesnt fill the JPanel

    Hi guys

    i am working on a chessboard. I want to fill the JPanel squares (64) with ImageIcons. When i use the Jpanel setBackgroundColor it works just fine. But when i want to use a JLabel with image i get the wrong result
    this is what is looks like and it should fill the whole board with squares.

    The following is my code, what am i doing wrong?

     
    package view;
     
    import java.awt.*;
     
    import javax.swing.ImageIcon;
    import javax.swing.JPanel;
    import javax.swing.JLabel;
     
    import controller.Controller;
     
    public class ChessBoardView extends JPanel
    {
        private final static ImageIcon DARK_BROWN = new ImageIcon 
        (ChessBoardView.class.getResource("assets/sqb.gif"));
        private final static ImageIcon LIGHT_BROWN = new ImageIcon 
        (ChessBoardView.class.getResource("assets/sqw.gif"));;
        private JLabel sqb;
        private JLabel sqw;
     
    	public ChessBoardView (Controller controller)
        {
     
            Dimension boardSize = new Dimension(300, 300);
     
            setLayout( new GridLayout(8, 8) );
            setPreferredSize( boardSize );
            setBounds(0, 0, boardSize.width, boardSize.height);
     
            sqb = new JLabel (DARK_BROWN);
            sqw = new JLabel (LIGHT_BROWN);
     
            for (int i = 0; i < 64; i++) {
                JPanel square = new JPanel( new BorderLayout() );
                super.add( square );
     
                int row = (i / 8) % 2;
                if (row == 0)
     
                square.add( i % 2 == 0 ? sqw : sqb );
                else
                square.add( i % 2 == 0 ? sqb : sqw );
            }
     
        }  
    }
