can you explain the result of this code??
In the following applet, how many Buttons will be displayed?

1: import java.applet.*;
2: import java.awt.*;
3:
4: public class Q16 extends Applet
5: {
6: Button okButton = new Button("Ok");
7:
8: public void init()
9: {
10: add(okButton);
11: add(okButton);
12: add(okButton);
13: add(okButton);
14:
15: add(new Button("Cancel"));
16: add(new Button("Cancel"));
17: add(new Button("Cancel"));
18: add(new Button("Cancel"));
19:
20: setSize(300,300);
21: }
22: }

AWT doesn't allow you to add the same instance of a component to more than one location in a layout. That's why the OK button is only added the first time. The Cancel buttons on the other hand, aren't the same instance, they just happen to have the same titles.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
