    Question Use 2D array to layout map with pictures

    Hello everyone,

    Please forgive me for my mistakes since I am a beginning programmer. Here's my situation:
    I'm making a Pacman look-a-like game, now I'm making the map out of an 2D array (as a grid).
    I already initialized the 2d array spots with "0" and "1". I managed to do this but now I'm stuck.

    I want to use the "0" and "1" to print the map. For example the "0" are grass and the "1" are walls.
    The map should be printed within a JFrame. And I would like to make the width and height 32x32 pixels.

    I searched on the internet and i found a couple of example codes but non of it seems to work properly.
    This is the code I'm using to make the 2D array and initialize the spots.:


    public class Level1 extends javax.swing.JFrame{
     
        final int ROWS = 17;
        final int COLS = 17;
        int[][] field = new int[ROWS][COLS];
     
        public Level1() {
            initComponents();
            setLocationRelativeTo(null);
            JPanel panel = new JPanel();
     
            int[][] field = new int[][]{
                {1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1},
                {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0},
                {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0},
                {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0},
                {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0},
                {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0},
                {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0},
                {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0},
                {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0},
                {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0},
                {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0},
                {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0},
                {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0},
                {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0},
                {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0},
                {0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0},
                {1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1},
            };     
        }
     
        public void makeMap(){
            String output = "";
            for (int row = 0; row < ROWS; row++) {
                for (int col = 0; col < COLS; col++) {
                    output += " " + field[row][col];
                }
                //somekind of code?
            }
        }
     
        protected void paintComponent(Graphics g) {
     //what do i put here?
        }
     
        private void draw(Graphics g) {
           //what do i put here?
            }
        }
        }
    }

    Can anyone help me with this because I'm really stuck here.

    Can you explain what the problem is?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Read the api for the graphics class. There are all kinds of methods which you can use in the paintCompnent method to paint your custom JFrame.
