I had written two applets and made them to communicate among each other. But
my problem is, on the click of the button in the html page the first applet goes invisible and the second applet should display. I had added an label to be displayed in the second label. But the label is not displaying. Some
one please help on this display issue.




import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.applet.*;



public class AppletCommunication2 extends Applet {
String msg = "";
Label label1;
public void init() {
repaint();
}

public void paint(Graphics g) {
g.drawString(msg, 300, 200);
showStatus(msg);
}
}

Technically I think you're not supposed to be able to do that. When an applet loses visibility it's supposed to stop. Even when an applet scrolls outside the visible portion of the web page it is supposed to be stopped, but every browser I tried will in fact let it keep running.

I can get your applet to work if i comment out the setVisible(false) line. Perhaps you could move it to the point after where you wake up the other applet, or you could just erase the contents of the original applet. Or you could replace the original applet with whatever you intended the 2nd applet to do.
