null pointer?
hi. i cant get this applet running. here is the code:-

this applet have 3 JTextField which represents red, green and blue. when a user input 3 values ranging between 0 to 255 and press enter, the applet will draw a fill rectangle(100,100,100,100) on a canvas (with white background). the color of the rectangle corresponds to the value input from the user. the problem is, when enter is pressed the following exception is throwed:-
Hi Syamsul,
The problem is that your Graphics reference is null. In your init() method, if you will change this:

to this:

then it should work. The problem here is that if you call canvas.getGraphics() before adding it to the applet's content pane, then it's graphics has not been set.
Hope this helps,
Michael Morris
