Does anyone know how to open up another URL page from within a Java Dialog component.  I have a login dialog, and when the user clicks on the submit button, it is supposed to open up a new HTML page.  How can I do this.  Some source code would be very beneficial.  Thanks.

use the following piece of code:(assume applet is your Applet object and urlStr contains the complete url-as a string of the new page that you want to display)applet.getAppletContext().showDocument(new URL(urlStr)) ;

that's correct. what you will need to do is, when you createthe dialog, you pass it a parameter which is your applet object. you can do this in the dialog's constructor. you can store this applet object as a member variable in the dialog class. when you invoke getAppletContex (), you can then do that using this applet object.

This is the code I have now:

import java.net.URL;
import java.net.MalformedURLException;

      public TestDialog(Frame parent, boolean modal, Applet applet) {

          super(parent, modal);

            //{{INIT_CONTROLS

      java.awt.Label label2;
      java.awt.Label label1;
      java.awt.TextField userid;
      java.awt.TextField pass;
      java.awt.Button quit;
      java.awt.Button submit;
      symantec.itools.multimedia.ImageViewer imageViewer1;
      //}}
}

In my applet when I call the dialog I have:

TestDialog dlg = new TestDialog((Frame)c, true, this);

I am having trouble compiling the dialog.  It says that the applet is undefined.  What else do I need to do?
