Anyone have java/applet source code that implements a html select tag?
My client wants some custom enhancements to the html select tag and I'm not sure how I would implement a drop down in java/awt/applet. I wonder if I could drive a class from choice and implement a custom display of the choices and make certain choices non-selectable. He wants to have some annotations mixed in as choices but not have the annotations selectable.
What is your feelings about using swing for such a project?
I'd prefer not to use swing because you have to load that extra activeX control or plugin and I believe that is kinda slow. Does using swing in an applet pop up that security warning that says the browser is trying to install an unsigned control that could compromise your security? I don't want that message.
Thanks,
Siegfried
