Warning: applet window

Hi there,

I have an applet that pops up a frame when it is ran.
However, when I run it from the browser(IE, Netscape),
the frame will show up with an bar at the bottom of the frame
with the text: "Warning, applet window"

This is extrememly distracting, not to mention unprofessional
looking I mean, the darned thing is in yellow for godsakes!
I understand that Sun made this mandatory in order to
differentiate itself from other running applications. However,
is there anyway to get rid of it? Thanks for the information.

Check the paq list -- this same question has been asked several times before (with the same topic line, even).  The only way to get rid of it, which hasn't changed since the last time this was asked, is to sign your applet or not create any frames from your applet.

take a certification, but it's different from netscape, microsoft, hotjava
--> with the Java-Plugin from SUN you can do a certification with jdk 1.2 !!

You can't get rid of the window, for the same reason that you have stated
above. Imagine, someone could've just created a login frame and pretend
that they are a website asking for login and password. This is the same
old trojan horse that is used to trap login info.

You could sign the applet, but of course that makes it more difficult. It'll
also be harder for distribution, and if you're selling to other companies
then each company will have buy their own certificate.

Since you cannot get rid of the applet easily, the best thing to do might
be to just explain to the customers why that warning shows up. It might
be cosmetically flawed, but at least your users won't go into a shock
every time they see the warning window
