> In Component of jdk1.2.2, there's a method called "isDoubleBuffered", which returns a boolean value depending whether things are doubleBuffered or not. I'm using Convas which is a subclass of Component. How do I set or enable double buffering? I've looked at all the methods and attributes and I haven't found a way to enable the double buffering. Please help!!

public boolean isDoubleBuffered()

Returns true if this component is painted to an offscreen image ("buffer") that's copied to the screen later. Component subclasses that support double buffering should override this method to return true if double buffering is enabled.
false by default

well, i haven't used this option yet, but if i'm not mistaken, u would have to override this method in your subclass to return true coz it returns false by default. just add a

public boolean isDoubleBuffered()
return true;

in your class i guess.
