I am trying run an applet with the paint method as below. The paint method gets called in an infinite loop. CAn any one help me.
public void paint(Graphics g) {
Graphics g1 = drawArea.getGraphics();
for (int i=0;i<noOfElements;i++) {setForeground(colorArray[i%colorArray.length]);
(scaleFactor * d[i]),BARGRAPHWIDTH,(int)(scaleFactor * d[i]));
public void setScale() {
int i = 0;
while((bigElement = bigElement/Math.pow(10,i)) > Integer.MAX_VALUE) i++;
for (int x=0;x<noOfElements;x++) {
intD[x] =(int)(d[i] = d[i]/Math.pow(10,i));

scaleFactor = GRAPHHEIGHT / bigElement;

This is really a question for the Applets forum
