Hi, my name is Dan and I'm a newb. I am using a JCalendar package from http://www.toedter.com/en/jcalendar/.

I created a simple applet where I am using the JDateChooser class. I compiled my applet and got no errors. But I get this error at execution time:
java.lang.NullPointerException
at javax.swing.ImageIcon.<init>(Unknown Source)
at com.toedter.calendar.JDateChooser.<init>(JDateChooser.java:172)
at com.toedter.calendar.JDateChooser.<init>(JDateChooser.java:111)
at CalendarApplet.init(CalendarApplet.java:19)
at sun.applet.AppletPanel.run(Unknown Source)
at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)
Exception in thread "thread applet-CalendarApplet.class" java.lang.NullPointerException
at sun.plugin.util.GrayBoxPainter.showLoadingError(Unknown Source)
at sun.plugin.AppletViewer.showAppletException(Unknown Source)
at sun.applet.AppletPanel.run(Unknown Source)
at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)

Here's my simple applet code:


Funny thing is, if I go back to the applet code above and substitute JDateChooser with JCalendar, it works without problems. Any ideas why I'm having problems with JDateChooser? Thanks.

Hello Dan-

Welcome to JavaRanch.

I can only report that the applet works fine on OS X, so I can't guess why it might cause problems elsewhere. Maybe someone else can try it on Windows.

Hello Ulf, thanks for the welcome.

Well...I compiled the applet using Java SDK 1.5.6 on WinXP machine. What's also weird is, I just created a regular Java application, not applet, again using JDateChooser class and it works fine with no problems. This is driving me nuts. For some reason, I can't use the JDateChooser class in an applet environment on my machine. I tried to download an earlier version of the JCalendar (1.1.4) package, but it doesn't have the JDateChooser class. I prefer to use the JDateChooser class since it is more compact, doesn't take as much space as the JCalendar class. I tried using both Firefox browser and IE, still no go on my machine. Oh well.

I e-mail Mr. Kai Toedter, hopefully he can help. I guess for the time being I can live with using the JCalendar class. Thanks again.

-Dan

If anyone's interested, apparently the JDateChooser class does not work with JRE 1.5 update 6. Dunno about earlier updates. I uninstalled 1.5 and installed 1.4 update 10. My applet now works. I already sent Mr. Toedter an e-mail to inform him of this.
