Neha,
Welcome to the Ranch.

We do not just hand out ready made solutions here.
Why don't you post what have you got so far and we can help you figure out the rest?

Not applet related. Moving to an appropriate forum.

As far as my knowledge is concerned, you can't do this, because Applets are run by the browser's JRE (Applet Viewer), so they can't access data from local machines (Its dangerous )

That is why we need to "sign" the applets

I think, you didn't gave a thought to my post, This is simply impossible to do, you cant redirect(its word from your post) the the array of file names to the HTML page to display radio buttons.

Whats your requirement? what exactly your project ?, Its homework/practice code for Applets ?

In pseudo code:
1) In the applet init() ensure the file array is prepared
2) Obtain the file array.
3) Prepare a panel with the appropriate layout.
4) Iterate through the file array
5) For every file, create a JRadioButton and add it to the panel
6) Add the panel to the applet

my requirement now is to develop a user interface that does the following:
1. its displays the number of files in a directory as radio buttons(text files).
2. allows user to choose from those
3. on the selected file's data i need to do check the numbr of colmns it has, i finally need to plot a graph from the file data
4.text file data is like

0.300, -124.87,
0.362, -127.36,
0.425, -129.30,
0.487, -131.52,
0.549, -133.48,
0.612, -135.43,
0.674, -137.19,
0.736, -138.74,
0.798, -140.21,
0.861, -141.52,
0.923, -142.71,
0.985, -143.86,
1.048, -144.94,
1.110, -146.01,
1.172, -146.87,
1.235, -147.60,
1.297, -148.74,
1.359, -149.45,
1.422, -150.16,

2.169, -158.13,
2.232, -158.84,
2.294, -159.37



and i need to finally see if there are only 2 columns then i need to insert another column with all zeros in it.

This same question I want to ask you, when I read your "pseudo code".

You simply can't have any file system rights when it comes to Applet, Correct me OR I'm missing something very silly ?

Where this files saved,
Answer,

1. On local machine -> Use Java Swing application
2. On server -> Get JSP/Servlet application

Check out the link I posted for signing jars.
Applets by default are not allowed to access the system resources. However if you sign the jars, the user is prompted for permissions. If the user grants the permission, the applet can access the system resources.
Also take a look at http://faq.javaranch.com/java/HowCanAnAppletReadFilesOnTheLocalFileSystem

Thanks Maneesh, I didn't know much about Applets and about signing them . Now I got it.

@Neha
You need some Java Swing tutorial
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/

Swing isn't difficult, but you should know who contain who and about layouts things.
Best Luck
