I have a self signed applet and was curious if it possible to default the Always Trust Checkbox to checked on the Applet Security warning screen for the user.

Thanks in advance!

No, that's outside the realm of what user code can do. It's a security decision, too: A self-signed certificate is always suspect, and by default should not be trusted. So the default to have the checkbox off makes sense.

Thanks for your reply. I agree with you about the security concerns. The reason I brought this up was I ran across a self signed applet that somehow defaulted the always allow to checked (you still had to initially select allow or deny). I couldnt figure out how they did this.

We are about to deploy this to 500+ customers and trying to communcate this to users can sometimes be hard.

Again thanks!
