Hi, I have an applet in which I call getParameter("parameterName") to retrieve the parameter. In my HTML file, I have the parameter set like this: <PARAM NAME="parameterName" VALUE="blah"> The applet works well on IE, but when I run it on Netscape 4.7, the parameter I got is null. I checked on the web, it looks that many people also got this problem, but I didn't see any good solution. Only one guy said if the characterset in Netscape is set to any thing other than "Western" (e.g. Chinese, or Japanese), the getParameter will return a null, but my characterset already set to Western(ISO-8859-1), I am really lost. Thanks for any information.
It works for me on both IE and NS, yes, NS 4.7. One thing I would suggest is Clear Memory Cache and Disk Cache and then retry. Applet class files may not be loaded from the server for every request. Hence if you did something wrong the first time, realise your error and then correct it, and try to access it without restarting your browser or clearing the cache, I am not sure what happens. I know theoretically speaking, the files should be loaded again, but I wouldn't trust this. I prefer Clearing the Cache first. For what its worth. - satya
