Java Startup Animation before an applet loads.

Hello All

I have a big applet which takes a lot of time to load. In between this time, there is a Java Startup Animation(Orange coloured Java loading animated image in 1.6) which comes up.

http://weblogs.java.net/blog/campbell/archive/2007/02/orange_box_new.html#comments

My aim is to replace the Java animation and put a custom made animation. I am able to replace it with a static gif image(instructions given in above link) but somehow not able to replace it with an animated image( animated gif file). I want to show a progress bar which can indicate that the applet is loading.

Can anyone put some light into this. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Sai

Welcome to JavaRanch.

There's no hook for running custom code, and animated GIFs are not supported. Either provide a static image of your own, or the default animation will run. There are no other possibilities.
 
No. No. No. No. Changed my mind. Wanna come down. To see this tiny ad:
