Applets, Dialog Frames and Threads
Posted on 1998-09-03
I have an applet that opens a class I derived from the frame class, and which is a form to enter user input to query a Database. When the frame closes, I need to call a couple of the Applets methods(repaint). Using Java 1.01, I've found that I need to spawn a new thread and make my frame-derived class implement the runnable interface. How should I kill the thread and how can I get the applet to know that the thread has been killed?
