Turning Applet into a Frame

I have a working applet that runs from with in the
browser window.  But I have seen other applications
that when you click on a spot or go to a particular page,
instead of fireing up the applet inside the browser, it
fires it up in an external frame! I would like to be
able to do this. Can somebody show me some quick small
code to do this so that I could apply it to my project?
Thanx!

I've done this in the past by extending the Frame class. The applet that is displayed on the web page simply shows a button. When the user clicks on the button, the class I derived from the Frame is invoked.

Two parameters passed into the applet are the width and the height of the frame. When the button is pressed, these are passed as arguments into my Frame constructor. Inside the constructor, you can call the resize() function to set the real size that you want for your window.

The frame itself contains the various interface components the user works with.

I hope this gives you enough to do some further reading yourself.

Pretty simple. You will still need an applet to run the new frame from tho.

public class myApplet extends Applet {

     public void init() {
           Frame myFrame = new Frame();
           myFrame.setSize(200,200);
           myFrame.setVisible(true);
           myFrame.add(new Label("Hello World"));
     }
}

Simple as that. You simply make an instance of the frame
when you want to pop up a new window, and specify whatever
components you want to add to the frame. You can always
create a custom Frame class of your own to display your
data. You can also add a button to the applet so that when
it's pressed, it'll pop up the new frame for display.
