    Default I'm not sure how to initialize GraphicsDevice and Window

    Java keeps telling me that the variables have not been initialized and it won't let me run my applet unless they are. I have looked and looked and LOOKED for the answer and have found none. Please and Thank you!


    GraphicsDevice myDevice;
    Window CallofDuty; 
    myDevice.setFullScreenWindow(CallofDuty);




    and then I have a second question is there a way to load video into an applet?

    Hello DotChris,

    Welcome to the Java Programming Forums

    Try:

    GraphicsDevice myDevice = null;
    Window CallofDuty = null; 
    myDevice.setFullScreenWindow(CallofDuty);

    Yes you can play video in a Java applet. Take a look at the Java Media Framework.

    The Java Media Framework (JMF) is a Java library that enables audio, video and other time-based media to be added to Java applications and applets.

    omg *face smack* I never thought to put a null there doh! Thank you so much! Wow >.> it just seems so apparent now. But of course a new problem arises, it still won't load in full screen.


    The whole point of this program is to trick a game addicted friend that he's playing call of duty 4 what he DOESN'T know is that it's going to be a very clever rick roll/annoying program and i'm going to make it so he has to press something like the tilde sign to stop it, the only problem is I can't really continue if it doesn't load full screen lol(preferably undecorated).

    import java.awt.*;
    import java.applet.*;
    import java.awt.Image;
    import javax.swing.*;
    import java.awt.Frame;
     
    public class Test extends Applet {
     
    	private Image picture;
    	public void init() {
     
    		resize(800,600);
     
     
    		picture=getImage(getDocumentBase(),"CallofDuty.jpg");
     
    	}
     
    	public void paint(Graphics g) {
     
    	g.drawImage(picture,0,0,this);
     
    	}
     
    public static void ControlPanel()	{
    GraphicsDevice myDevice=null;
    Window CallofDuty=null;
     
    myDevice.setFullScreenWindow(CallofDuty);
