Hi,
When displaying an applet in a browser window, if the window size is smaller than the applet size then while scrolling to view the entire applet there are many refresh problems. Sometimes the repaint does not happen properly, sometimes half the applet is missing.
What am i doing wrong or missing? Do i have to do soemthing in the start and stop methods?
thanks in advance!

I just had the same problem with my ticker applet.
Do you have an infinite loop in your applet?
if yes put it in a separate thread.
You might also cosider doing this:
public void update(Graphics g) {
paint(g);
}
and then call the
repaint();
somewhere in the code. Perhaps the start() method.
 
Can you hear that? That's my theme music. I don't know where it comes from. Check under this tiny ad:
