Hi everyone!

Is there a way to replace a common screen, which opens each time user loads a java Applet?

I mean that screen with Java logo and progress bar.

Is that possible?

Thanks in advance!

Technically, you cannot hide the loader, but we have a trick to circumvent this: make a tiny applet that loads, a loader! They are called a "preloader," and it's a tiny applet that shows a custom loading screen while you load the real applet. Searching around for this, or asking specifically about a preloader, might yield some helpful information.

If you're using at least Java 6 release 10 you can use the <image> applet parameter to show a custom image instead of the standard one; see http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/technotes/guides/plugin/developer_guide/special_attributes.html for more information.
