How can I close an Applet using the "Exit" button, which as been evoked from another applet and placed in a frame/window? Code as follows to call the second applet from the first:
Frame externalFrame = new Frame("Tile Shuffle Game");
externalFrame.setVisible(true);
TileGameApplet tga = new TileGameApplet();
externalFrame.add(tga);
boolean well = false;
externalFrame.setResizable(well);
int width = 300;
int height = 300;
externalFrame.setSize(width, height);
Window win = new Window(externalFrame);
//try to add windows listener to close applet as follows
WindowCloser listener = new WindowCloser();
win.addWindowListener(listener);
//and the I am trying to use the following to close the second applet but without much success:
class WindowCloser extends WindowAdapter
{
public void windowClosing( WindowEvent event )
{
//finalize();
setVisible(false);
//removeNotify();
}
}
I know that it can be done using JavaScript but I want to avoid this if possible.
Thanks,
Jon
