Use getAppletContext().showDocument(URL) method to call the target page with parameter list


getAppletContext().showDocument("http://myserver.com/exampl1.jsp?site='javazone'");

hi raj,
thanks. Thats after a hyperlink is created and a user clicks on that then we can load the URL in that form.
But i want to know how to create that hyperlink in the applet. for example :
String link="Click Here";
Now how do i make this String 'link' as a hyperlink so that when a user takes the cursor over this text, it acts as an hyperlink.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

HI,

you have to create your own hyperlink object. This can be a label for example. What is that you want that this does?
1, if the mouse is ower this label it changes the cursor and the text color.
Change cursor: In this case you have to add a MouseListener to your label and change the cursor:

  public void mouseEntered(MouseEvent e){
    this.setCursor( new Cursor( Cursor.HAND_CURSOR ));
myLabel.setColor(Color.blue);
}

  public void mouseExited(MouseEvent e){
    this.setCursor( new Cursor( Cursor.DEFAULT_CURSOR));
myLabel.setColor(Color.red);
}

Is that what you are looking for?

Labels do not generate events.

ahosang you are wrong. You can add a mouse listener to a label.
Methods inherited from class java.awt.Component
 action, add, addComponentListener, addFocusListener, addInputMethodListener, addKeyListener,
 addMouseListener, addMouseMotionListener, addPropertyChangeListener,
 addPropertyChangeListener,

etc, so check the API.

thanks kapitany,
that works. There's another slight problem.
This ticker applet has innumerable stock names and prices.
How do i create each individual quote and price as a hyperlink?
These qoutes are retrieved dynamically from the database.
Please help??
