Hello
I have signed my applet so it can write a file on the user's disk. This is working when the path is hardcoded.
But I would like to let the user choose where to save the file.
So I use the JFileChooser like this:

This always makes the browser to crash. The dialog box appears but any interaction with it (click, move...) makes the browser to crash. I have to kill the process.
What's wrong with JFileChooser in applets ?

Hi Christophe,
I don't think you should be having any problem. You didn't specify which Browser and version you were using. I have tried similar code on IE version 6 and have no problems. I have included the java code below and the HTML file inside it as a comment.

Enjoy,
Manfred.

I've tried your example and yes it works!
The SAME code when called from my applet makes IE6 and NS6.1 to crash !
The only difference being that I don't launch the JFileChooser with a JButton but by calling a public function. And this public function is called in the browser via JavaScript.

When I click on the link "testWriteFile" the JFileChooser appears and then browser "not responding" in TaskManager.
