Timestamp Converter Applet

I have created a timestamp converter applet that converts java timestamps (i.e. what you get from date.getTime()) and other UNIX type timestamps into human readable dates/times. You can also convert the other way around. It allows for the dates/times to be displayed in different date formats and time zones. It is basically a GUI wrapper for using the DateFormat class.

If you are interested, have a look at: http://www.ewert-technologies.ca/online_tools/timestamp_converter.html

I hope some people will find this applet useful,

I have a problem, when i click on the calander button it shows the calander but then when i try to move the mouse over it it disappears. I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 and Firefox 3.0.1.

Hmm... I just tried it from my Ubuntu box and see the same problem . Seems to work fine with IE, Firefox, Opera and Safari on Windows.

I'll take a look and see if I can figure it out. As a work around, you can manually type in a date. The text will be red if you type in an invalid date and green if its good.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll post back when I figure out the problem.

I have been looking into the problem of the calendar not working on Ubuntu.

I noticed that on Windows, when I put my mouse over the calendar a little warning triangle appears. When I mouse over the warning triangle, it says: "Java Applet Window".

I'm not sure what it exactly means, but my guess is, whatever is causing the warning to be displayed, is the same thing that is causing the calendar to disappear on Ubuntu.

Now I just need to figure out what the problem is.
