Discussion on: Why does my canvas implementation keep blinking?

It’s a Long time since I used Java and implemented double buffering. I’m not sure if I am correct. But my first finding, which I think is not necessary: you create and dispose the graphics ctx of the buffer. Just use the one you created in the constructor. And I don’t think you should dispose the panels Graphics. Just try it and observe for memory

Thanks for the tip. Though, when I tried this, the canvas didn't draw anything (it stayed white). Where previously, it displayed an image, then went to black (which is where the flickering started).
