Hello,
I have a tricky question, where I am not sure if java would supprot what I need.
I am drawing grahps using Graphics in a class that exdends Applet.
I would like to be able to draw two different things on the same 'canvas' without overwriting one another. Something that comes to mind as analogy is Layers but I couldn't find if Graphics has this or similar feature.
Basically, right now, if I want to draw something new on the canvas, I have to erase (owervrite) what was there before but I don't want to do that. I want to be able to add something on top of the old graphic and then later remove what I had drawn on top and still have the old graphic be there intact.
Any suggestions if this is possible and if yes, how I can do that?
(I am using Graphics methods such as: g.drawString, g.drawLine, g.drawLine etc.)
Help appreciated,
Ivan
