I would start by creating a class that extends JApplet, and add the JPanel to its content pane. Once you got that, put the JScrollPane in between the JApplet and the JPanel.

As an aside, please UseCodeTags when posting code of an length.

The way we like to help people here at JavaRanch is to get them to arrive at a solution themselves, instead of showing them the solution. You'll learn much more that way.

Are you familiar with applets in general? If so, using a JApplet instead of an Applet should be no big change. If not, you might want to try and create a simple JApplet first, before doing anything complicated.

As to the content pane, in Swing components are added to the content pane of a container (and not to add the container itself, as they are in AWT). You can get the content pane from the JApplet by using the getContentPane method.

Does this make things clearer? If not, let us know in detail what you have so far, and what you're struggling with.

I changed my constructor into Public and then i tried but still nothing was displayed in the Appletviewer...Can you able to give me solution?

my applet is not getting initialized

What does that mean? Are there any error messages in the Java Console? Which methods are or are not being called?

Your code should not call the constructor. The browser JVM does this for you. Try replacing the above lines by "DataSurveyor surveyor = new DataSurveyor(this, f);"

As an aside, the code is very hard to read the way you have posted it. As I asked you before, please UseCodeTags, and make sure that the indentation stays intact.

Previously it thrown an error as,there is no public constructor or class..so,i changed my constuctor as public..
But still only my appletviewer is showing,my graph was not showing...

What does your init method look like now?

public init()
{

JPanel panel = new JPanel();
JFrame f = new JFrame();
DataSurveyor surveyor = new DataSurveyor(this, f);
f.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
f.setSize(400,400);
f.setLocation(200,200);
f.setVisible(true);
}

And also i changed my paintComponent into paint()

That looks wrong. Earlier, graphicOption was a newly created instance on the applet. When I pointed out that you should not create instances of Applet, you said you removed it. So what kind of object is it referencing now? Also, you can't add the applet to it like the above statement does 9assuming that's what graphicOption is).

The JPanel seems to serve no purpose. Try removing the lines

And also i changed my paintComponent into paint()

Swing does not use paint, but paintComponent, so you should undo that change.

If not a costructor then what..
I worked well with swing why not with applet..
Swing will not use pain(),
but JApplet will..I'm right?
I to convert the coding into JApplet.

Applications work differently than applets. Generally, an applet should not have a constructor, and any initialization should be done in the init method.

Swing will not use paint(), but JApplet will..I'm right?

No. JApplet is a Swing class (like everything else in the javax.swing package).

yes...Now i'm getting the concept that i should not use constructor in Applet..
But,I have no idea how to proceed...
i.e.,what to do to the constructor and the refer to the "DataSurveyor class"

Thank you

Whatever is in the constructor should go into the init method.

You can pass "this" to any class that needs a reference to the applet.

Thanks alot...Now the problem is my Scrollbar is getting not getting displayed once the screen is launched...and along with the applet viewer one more window is getting displated...can use JFrame in JApplet because it is also a high level container....

Now my init() is:

JFrame f = new JFrame();
JScrollBar hbar = new JScrollBar(JScrollBar.HORIZONTAL,30,40,0,300);
JScrollBar vbar = new JScrollBar(JScrollBar.VERTICAL,30,40,0,300);
hbar.setUnitIncrement(2);
vbar.setUnitIncrement(2);
f.setVisible(true);
f.setSize(300,300);
test graphicOption = new test();
DataSurveyor surveyor = new DataSurveyor(this, f);

}

Moreover,while executing it in the IE,along with the tooltip,one more message is getting displayed ,the message is 'java window applet' Why so? what might be the problem?

A JFrame is a window by itself, so as long as you have one, there will be two windows.

test graphicOption = new test();

You really need to remove this, like I said before.

I removed that that quote but still i'm getting the same error as a mention in the previous...another Java window applet screen is also getting displayed
So,i should not use JFrame..I did the entire thing in JFrame..so, instead of that how can i change?

Thank you

You can absolutely use JFrame. I mentioned it because you said you didn't want two windows. If now you're saying that it's fine to have two windows (the appletviewer window and the JFrame), then there's no problem.

I'm wondering, though, what good the JFrame does, and why you couldn't display whatever you're displaying in it, display in the applet itself instead. Is the JFrame necessary?

Pleas edit your last post (by clicking on its icon) so that it properly uses the code tags. As I said twice before, the code is unreadable like this.

I'm willing to help you, but you need to put a little effort into it.

Something seems to have changed, but not the code formatting, which is as illegible as before. Please take a moment to verify what you post after posting it.

If you are unsure what code tags are, or how they look like and work, please read this.
