Accessing applet string from javascript

I need to check for whether or not applet scripting is enabled in a user's browser. I can check for javascript being enabled and Java being enabled, but I do not seem to be able to reliably verify that the ability to script an applet is enabled. My Java is a bit rusty, but I have an applet (see below) that displays the word "Enabled" in the browser. I want to access that string in the applet from the browser using JavaScript to verify that scripting is enabled, but I can't seem to access the currStatus string from the applet. Any suggestions?

Gary,
There are a couple classes within the netscape.javascript package that allow an applet to talk to javascript and vice versa. Take a look at this thread for some more information.
I hope that helps,
Corey

Hello there, you can change properties with the applet rather easily, look at this post and see if this will help you
