Windows XP + Press space-bar or enter to activate and use this control

Hi all,

This is my html file which calls applet using applet tag.


In windows 2000, applet is working fine. But in XP when the applet is loaded, a popup says "Press space-bar or enter to activate and use this control". Is there any way to modify code to get rid of this popup?

Please help.

Thankyou.

That message has nothing to do with the HTML or the applet code. What happens if you do activate it (whatever that means) - is the message shown the next time, too?

Dear Ranchers,

Please help me to trace a solution to the above problem. When i applied the patch in XP OS using the microsoft link, the pop up didn't appear. It worked as in Windows 2000. But my client says that the patch is only a temporary solution because Microsoft lost their patent. They need the fix to be done in the code to get rid of the "Click to activate this control".

Thankyou for your help.

I'm not following. The partch was applied and is working properly, and that's somehow not good enough? This patch was necessary because of the result of a lawsuit, so that now everything is in compliance. So what does the client mean by his remarks?

Ulf,

Thanks for your reply.
I tried that Patch in my local system. But they need not want the patch work to be applied on their OS. They are saying that this patch will work for certain months only. After that it will expire.They conclude that coding has to be modified.

Hello Ranchers,

I modified the code according to the link ActiveX Fix. It worked fine.
