I'm looking for strategies to dynamically changing the size of the
 frame that an applet displays in when the user changes the dimensions
 of their browser window... This would also be good to set the initial
 size of the applet when it's initially loaded.
 
 So, can anyone give me advice on:
 
 1) determining the browser's dimensions,
 2) detecting when theose dimensions change, and
 3) the way to change the applets frame dimensions and repain

you can't really determine the dimensions of a window in NN 3.x.
How about setting the height and width of the applet in a percentage width and height instead of pixels.
<APPLET WIDTH="85%" HEIGHT="35%" ......>

As far as I know (and it  doesn't work in IE3.02), you can't use percentages in the width and height of an applet...

You can use javascript to generate new html with a different size for the applet specified, but there is no current way to tell a script what you want. Javascript v1.2 has a resize event handler and can get window size info.  It's in Communicator 4.0 for Windows 95/NT.  It will allow what you want.

It's surprising to me that there may currently be no way to detect a container change size event... I want to look into the object model of Netscape and IE to see if that's really true... so I remain curious about whether and how this can be done... Thanks
