Is this actually an applet running in a web browser, or the applet viewer program? (Do you extend the Applet class?) If so, I'm not certain how to do what you want. However, if you just have your terminology confused and this is a full-blown application, which extends Form or JForm instead of Applet, then you can simply use System.exit() to close the application.
