Hi all. I'm trying to create a menu bar and a few menu items, but using an applet invoked by an html script. The menu items in the applet will have actionlisteners for buttons etc On clicking a menu item , another screen (GUI) will pop up, contained in its own frame. It will be refreshed continuosly from there on i.e. a child process which has a live of its own, even when the mother process is shut down (CLOSE_ON_EXIT). (1) Does this mean that the child process is another thread ??? If I use an event dispatching thread, does this mean the child is "thread safe" ??? Pls see code
(2)From all the docos I've read so far, it seems building a menu bar requires a JFrame, but since a JFrame is a top level container and (as I understand the tutorial) cannot be displayed in a browser window, then how do I go about building a menu bar for an applet ??? TIA :-)
