Hi,
In an applet, instead of the 'Applet started' in the status bar (at the bottom), can I show some other message ? I wanted to show another message when the applet first appears. I tried showStatus() in init() and start(), didn't work. Is there any way to do it ?
Thanks in advance...

The status can be changed in the status bar of an applet viewer only if it displays components which have a Listener attached to them. In that case the ' showStatus ' can be changed when the actionPerformed method is called .
