If my code is perfect, can any one tell me what is the maening of this error "Start: applet not initialized".
For all my applet programs, I am facing this error message.
Thanks.

Subodh,
I assume when you say that your code is perfect, you mean it is compiling without errors or warnings.
However, if you are getting this error, something must be wrong. Have you looked in the Java Console to see what the browser thinks the problem is?
Also, you might want to try posting the code that is giving you the problem. That would make it easier to diagnose.

Here is the code that subodh wrote.But he keeps changing places.
// use parameters
import java.awt.*;
import java.applet.*;
/*
<applet code="ParamDemo" width=300 height=80>
<param name=fontName value=Courier>
<param name=fontSize value=14>
<param name=leading value=2>
param name=accountEnabled value=true>
</applet>
*/
public class ParamDemo extends Applet
{
String fontName;
int fontSize;
float leading;
boolean active;
//Initialize the string to be displayed
public void start()
{
String param;
fontName = getParameter("fontName");
if(fontName == null)
fontName = "Not Found";
param = getParameter("fontSize");
try
{
if(param != null) // if not found
fontSize = Integer.parseInt(param);
else
fontSize = 0;
}
catch(NumberFormatException e)
{
fontSize = -1;
}
param = getParameter("leading");
try{
if (param != null) // if not found
leading = Float.valueOf(param).floatValue();
else
leading = 0;
} catch(NumberFormatException e){
leading = -1;
}
param = getParameter("accountEnabled");
if (param != null)
active = Boolean.valueOf(param).booleanValue();
}
// Display parameters
public void paint(Graphics g) {
g.drawString("Font name: " + fontName, 0, 10);
g.drawString("Font size: " + fontSize, 0, 26);
g.drawString("Leading: " + leading, 0, 42);
g.drawString("Account Active: " + active, 0, 58);
}
}
and you can check it here to see how it is working http://www.angelfire.com/yt2/resume1/PD.htm

hey,
where is your init() method ?? you must specify init() method in an applet..all the components should be initialised in init() mehtod before using in start() method in an applet.. you are welcome for more queries...
