Hello
does anyone know why I am getting this error message

Soundmap.java:94: not an enclosing class: java.applet.Applet
Graphics g = Applet.this.getGraphics();
the offending code is below

public void mousePressed(MouseEvent e) {
ImagemapRectangle r = findrect(e);
if (r == null) return;
Graphics g = Applet.this.getGraphics();
g.setXORMode(Color.red);
g.drawRect(r.x, r.y, r.width, r.height);
Applet.this.showStatus("To: " + r.url);
sound.play();
lastrect = r;
}

many thanks for your help

Simcel,
Your inner class looks like it is expecting the outer class to extend Applet... since you have not posted the entire code... Is your outer class extending Applet?
HTH,

Simcel,
Oh... OK... I am stupid... ( *slaps head* ) change the code to this:

( i.e. - change all references from Applet to Soundmap.... you have to reference the class directly enclosing the inner class...)
