There is a difference between Navigator and IE
in displaying components depending on the order
they are added. I want to display a backgroundimage.
The Navigator displays a backgroundimage below the
other components if it is added first. The IE if added
at last.
My question:

Is there a possibility to controll this ordering?
If not, how can I get the Information which ordering
is used or which Browser is displaying my applet?

You cant control the ordering, as the only spec that is standarized is that the ordering defines the controls tab order.

What you can figure out is which browser you are using.

Call:

 java.lang.System.getProperty(String key);

and use "java.vendor" with or without also using the keys "java.version" and "os.name".

Using these 3 keys you can get all the info that you need on what browser/version you are running on and then be able to make implementation decitions based on that.
