How can I call an applets function from javascript.The applet is inside an object tag.
hare is the code that i wrote in my html page
<OBJECT "classid="clsid:CAFEEFAC-0014-0002-0000-ABCDEFFEDCBA" width="100%" height="100%" codebase=",4,2,0">; <NOEMBED><XMP>
<applet name="appletname" code="abc.def.class" codebase="." archive="xx.jar" width="100%" height="100%" >


I tried the code
document.appletname.appletfunction() in javascript
but It is not working
please help.
Thanks in advance.

Hi shahabas
You should use ID attribute of the OBJECT tag to invoke methods on the applet.
I should warn you that applet's method calling in Netscape/Mozilla browsers using EMBED tag instead of OBJECt will not work.

Where you able to successfully do this? I am trying to do the same thing, I am using the ID on the OBJECT tag, I'm not worried about Netscape and it is not working.
