Hi EveryBody!
I have made an applet and it is working nice in Internet Explorer. But whenever I want to see this applet in NetscapeCommunicator(Ver: 4.7)the settings of the applet is being changed and it looks ugly.This state of thing has remain unchanged in case of Opera 3.0. Could any one tell me what should I do to overcome this situation? For your kind information I am using windows 2000 server OS although my PC is no connected to any network.

What is "ugly"? What LayoutManager are you using?

Hi Kudrat,
You are by default using FlowLayout Manager and when u want some specific positioning of ur components in applet, u may go for GridBagLayout or other Layout Managers to rescue ur applet.
Watch out Layout Managers in any Java book!
