did u try importing the method? if it is in a different package i think u can import the package in the current package which will enable u to import the method i am not so sure cause i haven't tried it before but i wouldn't hurt to try if i am wrong i stand corrected and would like to know too ----------------
It's always nice to trouble shoot one's own code and find the problem. Good job. For the curious, a good place to brush up on understanding access-permission concepts is the Controlling Access to Members of a Class lesson in Sun's Java Tutorial. As you've noted, Java is case sensitive and this has surely led to frustration and confusion to more than one Java novice. For a nice list of more things to be careful of when programming, check out Roedy Green's article on How To Write Unmaintainable Code. While your question did involve an applet, it was not applet specific and this conversation definitely belongs in the beginner's forum. [ June 12, 2002: Message edited by: Dirk Schreckmann ]
Regarding khella's questions and comments: In Java, we import and package classes (and packages). Access to the methods of a class are subject first to the available access to the class, then according to the rules outlined in Sun's lesson referenced above.
