I have downloaded the folowing code from javaranch site.
Able to compile the java prog, im getting msg applet started at the status bar but image is not getting loaded,I tried printing the msg in the where im calling g.drawImage () method.String is displayed on the applet but image is not coming.can any one tel what could be the reason .

thnx & regards

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

public class LoadAGifMsg extends Applet
private Image theHorse ;
private Image theMoose ;
private boolean showWaitMsg = true ; // will be set to false after image downloads

public void init()
// anything in here will run BEFORE the paint() method is called,
// even if you call repaint() now inside init
} // close init

public void loadGraphics()
// now load the graphics - this is like your "real" init
theHorse = getImage( getCodeBase() , "M1.JPEG" );
theMoose = getImage( getCodeBase() , "M2.JPEG" );
MediaTracker mt = new MediaTracker( this );
mt.addImage( theHorse , 0 );
mt.addImage( theMoose , 1 );

mt.waitForAll(); // block here until images are downloaded
catch ( InterruptedException e )

showWaitMsg = false ; // it is safe for paint to draw the image now
} // close loadGraphics

public void paint( Graphics g )
// test a boolean to if the "loading" message should be displayed
if ( showWaitMsg )
g.drawString( "Please wait... loading..." , 20 , 20 );
loadGraphics(); // call the method that actually loads the graphics
g.drawImage( theHorse , 25 , 25 , this );
g.drawImage( theMoose , 25 , 130 , this );
} // close paint

This forum is devoted to Servlets.
There is an applet forum on this site where.
You're question would do better there.

Rather than re-post the question, just PM one of the moderators/sherrifs and ask them to move it for you.

Duplicate in the Applets forum, this copy is closed.
