How can I insert a Panel in my Applet??? I know just one method that is add(), but it doesn�t work out of init() and i need to call this Panel out of init method. Someone in the world know how i can do it???

you can do this with getContentPane().add(new JPanel(...))

Matthew's advice is correct for JApplet, which is a Swing-based version of Applet that works only in the Java plug-in.
If you're talking about plain Applets, then why not show us the code that you tried, and be a bit more specific than "it doesn't work" (because "it" should indeed work fine) and maybe we can help.

Sorry, i was thinking of my own swing applet .With awt this.add(Component) must work.
P.D :Swing (JApplet,etc...) works well also without java plugin.
What about swt (Eclipse)? i've read it's the most efficient ui toolkit with still some portability problems...
