i created a custom panel with text fields, etc. and i want to create another 
control derived from that control. however, none of the components in the 
parent control appear in the derived control. would i be correct to assume 
that this is because i need to call initComponents() on the parent control 
and/or change the access on all the components in the parent control to 

the problem is that in order to call the parent's initComponents() method in 
the derived control i need to change its access to protected. how do i do 
that? netbeans won't let me modify the code so there must be a way to do that 
using the designer?

any help is much appreciated.
