I have been trying to use the setIconImage(image) method with the java.awt.Frame class, but I have not been successful at getting it to work.  Does anyone know how to get this to work correctly?

a = applet;
            theNode = node;
            try
            {
                image = a.getImage(new URL("http://bdssun.bdsinc.com/TreeView.ico"));
                System.out.println("Got image for icon...");
            }
            catch (MalformedURLException e)
            {
            }
            this.setIconImage(image);

This is the code I have in my java.awt.Frame:

I use the setIconImage(image) method and it does not contain the image when I run the frame in my browser.  Everything compiles ok, and the icon is on my server in the correct directory.  It just does not seem to work.

The following program when run using JDK 1.1.3 works and sets the image as specified in the <imagename>. the <imagename> can either be a string pointing to the full path+filename of the image or it can be a URL.

//======
import java.awt.*;

public class J2
{
      public static void main(String args[])
      {
            Frame frm = new Frame("J2");

            try{
                  frm.setIconImage(frm.getToolkit().getImage(<imagename>));
            }
            catch(Exception e)
            {
                  e.printStackTrace();
            }

            frm.reshape(10, 10, 100, 100);
            frm.show();

      }
}
//======

I tried using that exact same code and when I open up the frame in the browser it still shows the default java icon.  Does it accept .ico or .gif or .jpg?

you are right. it does not seem to work from within a browser. i tried it with Netscape 3.x and MS IE 3.x on Windows NT 4.0. But it does work if you use it in an application using JDK 1.1.3.
Probably it is another one of those browser issues or a bug in JDK 1.0.2 implementation of Java !!!
