We have a project (javaapplet) which is desighed using swing, it runs in IE and Netscape very well, but in Solaris Unix system, it has color display problem and pull down list also has display problem, I found about colorModel, but the swing book(java1.2) has no example about how to use ColorModel to design applet or application .Please give some help if possible, thanks.

I'm not familiar with color differences/problems from platform to platform. But in the past I've seen people have problems with Swing applications if they were running 256 colors or lower... I would check your Solaris graphics setup and make sure you are using lots of colors ------------------ Matthew Robinson co-author of "Swing" (1999, Manning Publications).

Thanks, Matt. Cannot we create platform color independent java applet/application? The problem is that the Solaris machine that we are developing our applet for is using Dome video card. This card is used in the medical field to produce high resolution "gray scale" graphics. What we are looking for is an example of altering the colorModel of the applet, so we can test different configurations on this machine. Thus, allowing us to find a viable solution to underlining video card problem. The thought is for the applet to control what colors it can use instead of the system deciding the colors. If someone has good examples or good ideas, please give some help. Thanks in advance.

I don't get it. A whale wearing overalls? How does that even work? It's like a tiny ad wearing overalls.
