    Default Java applet on web showing gray box

    Hello, I'm working on my senior project where we are trying to make an online game. The game is finished but when we try to deploy the applet to an html file we get a gray screen. Spent a lot of time researching solutions with no luck, was hoping someone here could help us. This is the code for the method that calls the GUI:
    package testGUI;
     
    import GUI.GameInterface;
    import GUI.MapPanel;
    import GUI.gameGUI;
    import GUI.nodeGUI;
    import Game.Game;
    import GamePlay.Player;
    import Map.MakeMapOne;
    import java.applet.Applet;
    import java.awt.Color;
    import java.awt.GridBagConstraints;
    import java.awt.GridBagLayout;
    import java.awt.Toolkit;
    import java.io.IOException;
    import javax.swing.ImageIcon;
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
    import javax.swing.JLabel;
    import javax.swing.JPanel;
    import java.util.logging.FileHandler;
    import java.util.logging.Level;
    import java.util.logging.LogManager;
    import java.util.logging.Logger;
    import java.util.logging.XMLFormatter;
     
    import javax.swing.JApplet;
    import javax.swing.SwingUtilities;
     
    public class testGUI extends JApplet {
        //Called when this applet is loaded into the browser.
     
        public void init() {
     
            try {
                LogManager lm = LogManager.getLogManager();
                final Logger logger;
                FileHandler fh = new FileHandler("log_test.txt");
                //Execute a job on the event-dispatching thread; creating this applet's GUI.
     
                logger = Logger.getLogger("GUI");
                lm.addLogger(logger);            
                fh.setFormatter(new XMLFormatter());
                logger.addHandler(fh);
                try {
                    SwingUtilities.invokeAndWait(new Runnable() {
     
                        public void run() {
                            createGUI();
                            logger.setLevel(Level.INFO);
                            logger.log(Level.INFO, "GUI created");
                        }
                    });
                } catch (Exception e) {
                    logger.setLevel(Level.WARNING);
                    logger.log(Level.WARNING, "createGUI didn't complete successfully " + e);
                    fh.close();
                }
            } catch (IOException ex) {
                Logger.getLogger(testGUI.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
            } catch (SecurityException ex) {
                Logger.getLogger(testGUI.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
            }
        }
     
        private void createGUI() {
            //Create and set up the content pane.
            for (int i = 0; i < 22; i++) {
                System.out.println((i % 3));
            }
            MapPanel p = new MapPanel(200, 200);
            System.out.println(p.getSize());
            p.setBackground(Color.red);
            //JFrame jf=new JFrame("Game");
            Toolkit tk = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit();
            int xSize = ((int) tk.getScreenSize().getWidth());
            int ySize = ((int) tk.getScreenSize().getHeight());
            //jf.setSize(xSize,ySize);
            JPanel whole = new JPanel(new GridBagLayout());
            GridBagConstraints A = new GridBagConstraints();
            A.gridx = 1;
            A.gridy = 1;
            Player p1 = new Player("Stephen");
            Player p2 = new Player("Shayne");
            Game g = new Game(p1, p2, MakeMapOne.returnMap());
            gameGUI a = new gameGUI(g);
     
            whole.add(a);
            //JLabel l=new JLabel (new ImageIcon("Graphics/g1Background"));
            //jf.add(l);
            //l.setVisible(true);
            //jf.setExtendedState(jf.MAXIMIZED_BOTH);
            //jf.setBackground(Color.gray);
     
     
            //jf.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
            //jf.setVisible(true);
            nodeGUI node1 = new nodeGUI(1);
            whole.setSize(xSize, ySize);
            whole.add(node1, A);
     
            a.setOpaque(true);
            setContentPane(a);
        }
    }

    This is the class that draws the GUI:

    There are more classes but those are the main ones responsible for drawing the GUI. Since we made the game and the web components at different times, my guess would be that something in the game code is not compatible with japplet browser capabilities. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Default Re: Java applet on web showing gray box

    Does it work if you view it through an IDE? Does your Java Console show any errors?

    It works fine through an IDE, no errors.

    I meant, do you see any errors in the Java Console when you run it in a webpage? When you see the gray box, does your Java Console have any errors?

    Oh sorry, no just a blank gray box.

    Are you sure you're looking at the Java Console? It's not visible by default.

    If so, I'd recommend throwing in some print statements and looking at them in the Java Console to get to the bottom of your problem.

    Thanks that helped, I didn't even have it enabled. I'm getting a java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException, not sure what causes that since I don't have any duplicate classes. I have run into this problem before because of duplicate classes, not sure what its complaining about this time though.

    Edit: Making progress, created a project with no classes seems to have gotten rid of the exception. Thanks for telling me about the console, I had no idea that even existed. That probably should have been one the first things I learned in comp sci... oh well better late than never.
