    Default HELP! My applet won't run on a web browser....

    This is for an assignment I need to turn in tonight! My applet runs fine in Eclipse, but when I try to open it in a web browser, the screen goes white, acts like its loading something, but then quits and stays a white screen. I've got the .class file, .java file, and .html file all in the same directory from where I attempt to launch the .html file. I made an .html doc which reads:

    <applet code="<filename>.class" width="300" height="150">
    </applet>

    I made a different applet previously using the same .html file format above, with merely a different .class file name and it worked fine in a web browser!

    If anyone has any insight to the problem, PLEASE respond....

    Thanks in advance,
    -C

    One thing I just noticed, in the directory with all the files, there's a file named <filename>$1.class. This type of file is NOT present in the directory of the applet that DOES work in a web browser. I'm veeeeery new to programming and java, what does this type of file represent and would it be causing the problem?

    Thanks,
    -C

    ...figured it out. I was using the wrong format in my html file. I switched it to the correct form and now the applet loads.

    Bertorox the correct way is to do the following.... I just solved mine.....


    <html>
    <title>UNDER CONSTRUCTION</title>
    <br>
    <body>
    <center>
    <applet code=Game.class codebase=dev/SUPINC/ name=Game
    width="1024" height="768">
    <param name="bgcolor" value="ffffff">
    <param name="fontcolor" value="000000">
    Your browser is not Java enabled.
    </applet>
    </center>
    </body>
    </html>


    Now my index.html file is in the root of my webhost ..... the Game.class is @ /dev/SUPINC/ so I used (codebase=dev/SUPINC/) to navigate to that directory to tell the page that's where my Game.class file is located.....

    ALSO VERY IMPORTANT!!! Make sure when you upload your items there'll be a file called (IN MY EXAMPLE) Game.class AND a file called Game$1.class

    YOU MUST UPLOAD THEM BOTH!

    That fixed my error

    You can see mine in action here: UNDER CONSTRUCTION
