Basically, when a client succesfully retrieve a webpage which embed an applet, the applet will initialize and start. I coded an invisible applet, what i want to do is initialize and start the applet until the client click the button.
Can i do that, if so,how to?
Thanks for your gift idea in advance.

did i get you right ?
you want to start the applet invisible and then upon button click (a html form button or image) the applet is displayed ?
well, i think you can call applet methods from Javascript. i dont know how this works exactly but perhaps this leds you to the right direction.

Why not just have part of the applet invisible and have a visible button on the applet to show the invisible part... I think we need more info on what you are trying to do...
