This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I am working my way through GUI programming and find myself frustrated about not being able to fix a screens dimensions (yet)
So far I have figured out that:
1. "The screensize" of an applet can be regulated from the HTML code that launches the applet. The parameter width and height determine how big the "applet screen area" is going to be "on screen in the browser" of the client. (see example below)
Question: How can I determine/fix the surface_area of an applet (from inside the applet via code)
