hi,
my applet is embedded in the HTML file. The HTML has a .jpg file as background color. How to set applet transparent without any color.
Thanks
Simon

You cannot make the background of an applet transparent... you can however, make it display your background image within the applet ( just pass the graphic in and do a drawImage() in paint, and then display the rest of your applet over it... ). However, in most cases this is not a satisfactory solution, since the applet will not line its background up with the background of the browser.
HTH,
-Nate
