Hey guys,
I want to maximaze the applet viewer windows, so it will be a full screen size no matter where the applet runs.

Do you mean "maximize AppletViewer when it runs" or "maximize the window in which the applet runs"? (Remember, an applet runs in a Web browser, and not in a separate viewer window like a Java application would.)

If the second, in an application you can get the resolution of the monitor, then set the size to the x and y size. In an applet, I don't know if you can do that. The Applet class has reSize and setSize methods, and it inherits the getMaximumSize and getMinimumSize methods from class Container and other getter/setters from class Component, so this may be a good starting point for experimentation.

Cheers, Jeff (SCJP 1.4, SCJD in progress, if you can call that progress...)
I agree. Here's the link:
