    Default Help with making a small game

    hello ,
    i'm trying to make a small game ,
    i never done this before and got mixed up in the menus
    i tried to make a background image and it worked
    now i'm trying to put a jbutton on the background picture
    and it won't show i'm guessing it's not on top
    any ideas how to solve it ?

    here's what i did to get the background image
    public class Main extends javax.swing.JFrame {
         * Creates new form Main
        public Main() {
           Dimension d= java.awt.Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize();
           ImageIcon icon = new ImageIcon("images/c.jpg");
           Image image = icon.getImage();
           image = getScaledImage(image ,d.width ,d.height);
           JLabel pic = new JLabel(new ImageIcon(image));      

    thanks to all helpers !

    The posted code does not compile without errors.
    Can you make a small simple program that compiles, executes and shows the problem?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
