setBounds & setSize bug?

Hi All,

I have a strange problem with my applet, it sometimes does not fully display (Only display half or 1/3 of its height).

I tried to add setBounds and setSize calls, I even called to resize using Javascript but the applet still does not display full height. It's strange that if I manually resize the browser window containing the applet, then it displays correctly.

I use JRE_1.5.0_15.

Please advice?

Thanks

The applet size can't be affected by any of the methods you describe. It is determined by the width and height attributes of the applet tags.

What do you mean by "does not fully display" - is there an empty area where the lower half of the applet should be, or is the applet's area actually smaller than what you specify in the height attribute?

Ulf,

Thanks for your answer.

Both width and height attributes are set to "100%".


What do you mean by "does not fully display" - is there an empty area where the lower half of the applet should be, or is the applet's area actually smaller than what you specify in the height attribute?



"does not fully display" means it only displayed the upper half of the applet, the lower half appeared to be blank (in gray, actually).

Please advice?

Thanks,
Chinh

When that issue happened, I've even tried to call applet resize(width, height) from javascript but the applet still did not display all. It only displayed correctly when I dragged the mouse to resize the browser window.

Thanks,
Chinh

Width and height are given in pixels, not percentages.

An applet can't be resized, not from within the Java code, nor from the outside using JavaScript.
