Is it possible to create a complex gui (JTable, JTree etc.) in a web browser without using an applet. I would like this complex gui to co-exist with a dynamic menu. The reason I don't want to use an applet is because of the following documented behaviour: Layers can contain form elements, applets, and plug-ins, which are known as windowed elements. These elements are special in that they float to the top of all other layers, even if their containing layer is obscured. see http://www.webreference.com/dhtml/diner/seethru/ Any help would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Damian.
I haven't really used dhtml for 2+ years, nor do I fully understand your question, but it seems to me that what you are asking how to do is have an applet contained in a layer (using dhtml). In which case, isn't it (more or less) possible to put anything html in a layer? And wouldn't that include the ability to embed an applet? Or are you trying to do something else?

Hi Dirk, If you look at the link it shows that applets will always appear on the top layer in a html page on a browser. If you have a dynamic menu with an applet, when the menu dropdown goes into the applet space on the web page, it will be displayed behind the applet. I hope this clarifys my problem. Regards, Damian.
