I'm using Frontpage 98 and have used a couple of java buttons which work great in Internet Explorer, but not in Netscape 3.0. What Do i have to do get the buttons working in both ?

itssbell,

Take a look at
kanga.unixnet.org/~bigelos/temp/test/fphover.html

and you can see how I implemented fphover buttons.

You can look at the directory structure by looking at
kanga.unixnet.org/~bigelos/temp/test/

Once you take a look at that, let me know if you have any further questions.

Thanks,
-bigelos

Note that you should make sure you have the right version of the fp class files, and they should be in the default _fpclass directory.  You can download a zipped copy of these at kanga.unixnet.org/~bigelos/temp/test/_fpclass/class.zip

As far as I know, you must have all the files in your directory as I do in mine.  (Except, of course, for the GIFs and the fphover.html file.)

What version of Netscape doesn't it work for?  I just took a look at your page using Netscape Gold 3.03 and it works fine.  Do you have Java turned on?  (Options-Network Preferences-Languages).  Do you have the latest copy of Netscape 3.0?  There were some bugs in 3.0 that were corrected in 3.03.

I have found Netscape 3.03 to not behave very well if you are trying to get a Java applet to work.  Basically, after every change, you are going to have to clear the java applet out of Netscapes cache (C:\Program Files\Netscape\cache) and you are going to have to stop and restart Netscape after you clear the cache.  I have a seperate copy of Netscape 3.03 that I use specifically for testing Java applets, and I have the cache set to 0 on it.

One other thought--you aren't trying to get the Java applet to work using a 16-bit version of Netscape, are you?

test it on AppletViewer, then follow by HotJava browser to
ensure that what FP98 created is 'clean'.

If it works on HotJava, try to find out more about the Netscape 3 browser
and its related reported bugs in Netscape site.

I got it working in Netscape 3.03.  If you want it to work in Netscape 3.0, make sure you have the latest copy of 3.0, with all the bug fixes.  It is still available from Netscape.  I can give you the URL if you want.
