Restarting an Applet

Suppose I have an applet (NOTE: I do not want to require a plugin), and I do all kinds of things but I always want to have a button, such that if the user pushes a button, the whole applet will be reloaded and initialized just as if it had been newly loaded. Is there a way to do this?
With Respect,
Ranch Hand

Hi Matt,
Yes it can be done, probably not like you are thinking though. You can always reset all your internal variables to some value and make the applet look like it was reloaded. You can't however actually have the browser reload you from within your code. The browser is in control and you are its' guest. It tells you when to load or kill yourself not the other way around.
I have gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get back, keep me here with this tiny ad:
