Hello is it possible to emulate the swing JTabbedPane class in jdk1.1??
I have to change my java2 program which uses swing to jdk1.1 since most browsers dont support jdk1.2..
normally this would not be an issue but on WindowsNT/2000 when a user doesn't have administrative priviledges then they cant download the latest plugin..
help please..

Hi Charlie,
I think you could do a good job with buttons and a cardlayout. It won't look the same but it will work the same.

Hi charlie ,
I m stuck with same problem as well in one project.
I haven't tried it but i think it will gonna work and we can show almost the same GUI in jdk1.1.
For that just put divide a panel in 4 different panels and draw images on them. (Images should be of TAB-OFF format). listen to the click event.
On click just call the paint for all panels and replace the image with the TAB-ON image.
I hope u will get this.
There is something too in java Imaging as well .. for this.
do check it as well ..
