I want an program whose objective is to show some images in an applet. This applet should also have two buttons "Next" or "previous" as at one time I want to show only 15 images. I am able to show the first 15 images in the applet with the button "Next" but now when I click at this button it do all the processing but never refresh it...what I mean I could not able to see new images...
But If I try with the AppletContext concept and load the applet once again against a new HTML I can see these images...
Is there any know problem in refreshing applets or AppletContext is the only way of refreshing it.
Thanks & regards,

Is the applet maybe trying to display images before they have been downloaded and are ready for displaying? Have you tried using java.awt.MediaTracker ?
