I would like to write a applet including a textfield and a mouse.  When move the mouse pointer over the textfield, the text in the color of the text in the textfield will be changed to another color.  Can anyone tell me what is the algorithm?

First you must extend TextField, and there watch for actions.
I have tried this code, but it doesn't work. It seems, tha Textfield cannot react to mouse move.
Other components can.

Here is example :
class MY extends TextField
{
   public boolean mouseMove(java.awt.Event evt, int x, int y)  

    {
         System.out.println("moved");
       return true;
    }
   
   public boolean handleEvvent(Event event)
     {

        if (event.id == Event.MOUSE_MOVE)
          {
               System.out.println("moved");
          }
        return true;  
     }

In this way you can generraly do it for all components in the same way.
I was also surprisedm that Texfield doesn't work, but I think that was also one discusion in NewsGroups.
Hope you will help me with scores although it does'nt work
