I haven't looked at the code, but resizing is not an option for applets. They have a fixed size that can't be changed once they're part of an HTML page.

The Applet FAQ points to the Java Tutorial section on applet tags in HTML: http://faq.javaranch.com/java/AppletsFaq#tag

Actually applets can be resized, but it involves JavaScript. I have used the following quite successfully:


This even works with applets defined in an <object> HTML element.

You have to call it in the HTML body's onLoad and onResize events.

wow, moved again...

anyway i have a partial solution to my problem. added these lines to my paint() method.



this is an example that my instructor gave us. it just made sense to redraw the head and trunk again. now i'm still stuck on why the background color doesn't resize with the frame(white where cyan ought to be), and of course the failure of the class to initialize in webpage<ie,mozilla,konqueror> again any help will ...

thanks again.
