by the code below, the graph is made and at the end added to a jpanel in another class which has a bar to show the long graph (usually over 3000 width):

        int width=mainclass.withofgraph; //calculated at main class
        mainPanel.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(width, 276));
        mainclass.p.add(mainPanel); //adding to the jpannel at main class

mainclass.f.revalidate(); mainclass.f.repaint();

    }

}




but the problem is the bar is slow to be usable when scrolling to check all the graph and that's specially when graph contains many points and the device is slower.

how to save the made graph at the end of the code to as image so that the image gets added to the jpanel so that solve the slowness problem.

What I have tried:

when increasing the width like 10 times wider, it works fine even on slower devices but its then too long for its purpose.
