Thread: Java Constructor

    Default Java Constructor

    I am trying to create an Applet that draws 3 rectangles that have random size, color, and location. It also needs to draw new rectangles every time it is resized. Also, I need to create a class that represents a rectangle that knows its size, color, location, and how to draw itself.

    I am not really sure how to start the constructor or the Applet.

    I think the constructor looks something like:
    public Rectangle(int x, int y, int size, Color c)

    and it also has a method that looks something like:
    public void draw(Graphics g)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Default Re: Java Constructor

    Applets don't use a constructor. The startup code is in the init() and start() methods.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
