Hey guys
Is there any way that an applet can call javascript functions in Internet Explorer? I know it's possible in Netscape, but I've yet to come across a viable solution for Internet Explorer.
I've got an HTML page and I want the applet to be able to change the content of a certain part of the page (a marquee) every so often. It doesn't need to use a JavaScript call if you can think of a better solution, but that's the only way that I've tried so far.
A big thanks to anyone out there who can help me

Why not just make the marquee the applet? ( Or the applet the marquee... either way it works... )

On the other hand, you could probably just do the entire thing in JavaScript...

From what you have described I see no reason to need to mix Java and JavaScript...

According to this fellow the JSObject classes work in IE ( though he mentions some annoyances... ), though I have not personally tried running the Netscape API under IE...
