    Default Java not drawing my string

    Hey guys,

    I'm learning some Java and I got stuck on a problem.

    Here's my Main.java :

    import java.awt.Graphics;
    import java.awt.Graphics2D;

    import javax.swing.JPanel;

    public class GameFrame extends JPanel {

    public GameFrame() {

    public void Paint(Graphics g) {
    Graphics2D g2d = (Graphics2D) g;
    g2d.drawString("Hello world", 150, 200);

    And here's my GameFrame.java :

    import javax.swing.JFrame;

    public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    JFrame frame = new JFrame("Game");
    frame.setSize(854, 480);
    frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOS E);
    frame.add(new GameFrame());


    It creates the JFrame but it's not drawing my text.

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.

    Check the spelling, java is case sensitive
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
