    Question Blank Applet Screen

    Hi, I'm new to these boards. I am currently working on a java applet (stand alone - no html stuff) and I'm having a little problem. When I run the following code, nothing appears on the applet until i resize the frame while it's running (and then it works just fine):

    import java.applet.*;
    import java.awt.*;
    import java.awt.event.*;
    import java.awt.font.*;
    import java.text.DecimalFormat;
    import javax.swing.*;
    import java.util.Date;
    import static java.awt.BorderLayout.*;

    public class WidgetStore extends JApplet implements ActionListener
    //declare variables and images
    ImageIcon introScreen = new ImageIcon("IntroScreen.gif");
    JLabel introScreenLabel = new JLabel(introScreen);

    //construct components and containers
    JButton proceedButton = new JButton("Enter");

    Container c = getContentPane();
    JPanel topIntroPanel = new JPanel();
    JPanel bottomIntroPanel = new JPanel();

    public void paint(Graphics g)

    public void init()
    //set frame properties

    //create panels and add or change various components
    c.setLayout(new BorderLayout());
    topIntroPanel.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
    bottomIntroPanel.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
    c.add(topIntroPanel, NORTH);
    c.add(bottomIntroPanel, CENTER);



    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)

    I don't understand what's causing the applet to not display anything until a resizing of the frame occurs....moving the frame around doesn't do anything either.

    All help appreciated! Thanks!
