Here's some code that should help you out...

It shows how to add a frame to an applet, and how to launch that frame when a certain area on the applet is pressed.

thanks for the reply nathan,i actually figured it out earlier in the weekend.now i am able to do what i wanted to do,ie,display a frame on clicking certain area in the applet but now my problem is that i want to display something in the frame based on the region of the applet that has been clicked,ie,for different clicked area i will have something different written on the frame.for this i have to get the applet and the frame class communicate with each other(i have 2 classes,one for applet and one for frame).can u give me some idea as to how to get this done.i will appreciate it.
regards
karan

You could give the Frame a CardLayout, and have a different "card" display based on where you clicked. You could also have several seperate frames, and which one is launched depends on where the user clicked. I personally think that the first solution is a better one...

Here is a slightly modified version of the code above that may help you out...
