What I am trying to do is open a JDialog from javascript in an html page. I have found code to do this and I am 90% there in that I can bring up the dialog from a javascript function - the problem is that when the dialog is visible there is an hourglass and you can't edit anything within the dialog - and then the browser just becomes hung.
So, my code is thus - I have a hidden applet in the html page:
import java.applet.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import javax.swing.tree.*;
import javax.swing.border.*;
import java.util.*;
public class HiddenApplet extends JApplet
public HiddenApplet()
{ }
public void openAddKeyword()
System.out.println("called in method");
AddKeywordsDialog d = new AddKeywordsDialog();;;
System.out.println("called in method out");
Then in my html page I have:
function call_java() {

applet code="HiddenApplet" width = 10 height = 10
name = "hiddenapplet" applet
and then I call the calljava method from a submit button

(please use your imagination - I had to take out the arrow characters so I could post)
Many Thanks
