Well, first of all I'd like to know how can I get my applet size, I know it must be something like applet.getsize() or something similar but I dont' know exactly.
The second thing is that I'd like to know any webpage or document or something where I can search for commands like you can do in php (at php.net), because I'm wasting most of my time searching for this stupid little commands and I'm feeling really stupid . Well hope somebody will help me. Thanks in advance.

Well you can start here
If you have downloaded the JDK then you should also download the JavaDocs for your JDK version...if they're 1.4.1 try here
Hope this helps!

Ok, I'll give this page a try, it's only that I don't like this page , and I was wondering if there are others, but I'm going to give this page another try, maybe it's just that I'm so stupid that I dont know really how to find things there . Thanks.

hehe, I doubt you are stupid; you are just not familiar (yet) with the JavaDoc structure. But trust me, after you start using it a bit you'll really appreciate the depth of documentation available to you. If you plan on doing any serious java development, learning how JavaDoc works is *crucial*.
The top-left panel is a list of all the packages documented; if you don't know which package a class belongs to, you can just choose "All Classes" and you'll get an alphabetical list of all the classes documented in the list on the lower left. The right side of the screen has the API docs for the class you have selected on the left. The docs are broken into various sections giving an overview of the class, its fields, constructors, and a list of all its methods which you can click on to get a detailed description.
Note, JavaDoc is a reference tool, not a tutorial. If you need a tutorial on an API, try looking for one here first:
