I am calling Applet's public method from javascript. In the method in applet which is called from javascript displays a dialog box(for eg. JColorChooser). After showing the dialog box browser hangs up.

The Sample code which i writen is as follows.
The Applet class has the code:


Html File to load the applet has the following code:

In the Html code place a button and onclick call funt() function which is defined in the html code.
I placed this code while posting the topic, but it not allowed me to post.so removed the button code from the html code

In Object tag replace "codebase" attribute value with
"http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/1.4/jinstall-14-win32.cab#Version=1,4,0,mn"
Earlier the value i mensioned value is from local systems directory.

hi
i know whats wrong but i dont have a solution
in NN we dont get embedded applet into the applets array in javascript. try doing,
document.applets.length, it will give you 0 and in IE it will give you 1.
i'm facing the same problem. i don't know how to make this work...
regards
maulin.
