Is there a way to give the user of an applet the option to display the applet outside of the browser window? I'm pretty sure I have seen this done before and when popped out the applet area in the browser says something like "This applet is being displayed in a separate window" or something like that. The reason I ask is that the user may want to display the applet in a frame that is bigger than the applet tag is allowing. I'd like to show the applet in the webpage, but offer them a button that will "pop" it into its own frame. (yes, I know WebStart is a possible solution, but it's not an option for me) I think this should be fairly easy for me since my main component is a JPanel that is simply added to the applet. Hmmm. I just checked and and in my init() method in the JApplet, I create the main JPanel and add it to my JApplet. It looks like I should be able to also creat a new button and when pressed, create a JFrame and remove the panel from the applet, and add it to the JFrame. Guess i'll give that a try. Brian
