I have trouble with a TextField within an applet. I just want a simple TextField and add an ActionListener but
ist doesn´t work right.
Here is the code:

import java.awt.event.*;
import java.applet.*;
import java.lang.*;
import java.awt.*;

public class testapp extends Applet implements ActionListener {

    TextField tf;

    public void init() {
        setLayout(null);
        tf = new TextField("Meier",20);
        tf.addActionListener(this);
        add(tf);
    }
   
    public void actionPerformed (ActionEvent e) {
        Object obj = e.getSource();
        if ( obj instanceof TextField )
           System.out.println ("Field " + e.getActionCommand() );
    }    

    public void start(){
        System.out.println("Applet: start()...");
    }

    public void stop(){
       System.out.println("Applet: stop()...");
    }

    public void destroy() {
       System.out.println("Applet: destroy()...");

    }      
}

I can compile the programm without any errors and warings but when displaying I get this error mesage:

# Applet exception: error: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: java.awt.TextField: method addActionListener (Ljava/awt/event/ActionListener;)V not found
java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: java.awt.TextField: method addActionListener (Ljava/awt/event/ActionListener;)V not found

Where is the problem ?

What are you using to display it?  Appletviewer...or a browser like Netscape? If Netscape, make sure you have the jdk 1.1 patches.

But do u have the jdk 1.1 patch for the Communicator ?
If not, install the patch, and the Applet should work without any problems ! (Applet running in your browser, dont access the jdk 1.1.3 u have installed, they use their own VM.
