I am currently trying to open my applet in IE or Netscape. My applet shows up very nicely, but my image does not. I checked the java console and it says that:
com.ms.awt.image.ImageFormatException: no global colormap in GIF file.
at com/ms/awt/image/GifImageDecoder.error
at com/ms/awt/image/GifImageDecoder.readHeader
at com/ms/awt/image/GifImageDecoder.produceImage
at com/ms/awt/image/InputStreamImageSource.doFetch
at com/ms/awt/image/ImageFetcher.fetchloop
at com/ms/awt/image/ImageFetcher.run
What does no global colormap in GIF file mean? And how would I remedy the error? I greatly appreciate any suggestions!! Thanks!!! -sara

I am not sure what this error means... Have you tried to load a different GIF? That would at least show if the problem was with your code or the image you were trying to load...
