about exit button be more clear about what you want. To reset the text on a label just simply call yourLabel.setText("") or yoourLabel.setText("New text goes here")

As Ovi says to set your label, text component or whatever to empty you just put in the command call yourLabel.setText("") which sets it to a blank return

For the exit button you will need an ActionEventListener so you can then put in the ActionEvent  System.exit(0);

this will close your applet.

Hope this is of some use to you

Cheers RPM.

Sorry you cannot close an applet. It runs inside another application such as a browser or appletviewer.
Calling System.exit from within an applet will throw a SecurityException.
It doesn't make sense for an applet to be allowed to shutdown your browser.

What do you want to do ? To close the entire IE or netscape window ? You can do this with som javaScript called by java applet.

System.exit(0) makes no sens in applet !!!

You can close the applet by closing the browser window, if this is what you really want. To do so you must use some simple LiveConnect implementation.

When you say the applet window you are refering to the browser window or to a separate applet frame window ?
if(browser.window)
  use LiveConnect
else if(separateWindow)
  separateWindow.addWindowListener(new ExitAdapter());
.....

class ExitAdapter extends WindowAdapter {
  public void windowClosing(WindowEvent we) {
    Window w = we.getWindow();
    w.dispose();
    w = null;
  }
}

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

LiveConnect is netscape specific, so it won't work in IE or other browsers.

Using the java applet, you can't close the browser window wherein your applet is running.
you can only open a new window (not a browser window; a java.awt.Frame) and close this
when you want to, but the original browser window (or appletviewer, etc.) will stay open.

you can only switch to something like a suspend mode in your applet. something like displaying a message similar to "this applet is inactive".

daniel

For teast :

Live connect is possible in IE like this :

- unidirectional, from html to applet, calling some applet public methods via document.applet['applet_index in page starting with 0'].someAppletPublicMethod(some parameters);
- bidirectional, using for the html->applet comunication the above method and for applet->html comunication using the netscape.javascript.JSObject and netscape.javascript.JSException classes. The price for including this two classes into the applet project is minimal compared with the functionality.

If you take a look at the archives in Windows/Java/... you will find there the above classes included into the Microsoft VM. So the LiveConnect is fully suported in IE too.
