applet size in Netscape

Hi,

I try to put my applet in a table for avoiding frames. In IE5 works fine but in Netscape 4.7 or NS6 there are problems.
I used frames earlier and it was working fine. Now I removed frames and I put tables instead. My applets are using the 100% for with and height. It's fine in IE because it takes the whole space in the table.
In NS4.7 it displays in a 2x2cm sized window any idea why? Might be that the 100% parameter is not allowed..
In NS6 the size of the applet is the window size and not the size of the table.
I would appreciate any solution. I know that NS has problems with the tables and to put the right size I should use a 1x1 pixel size point.
So how can I put 100% width and height for my applet?

Hi Kapitany

I want to say few things to you.
may be this will be helpful to you.

Allways HTML tags takes up the space of the applet rather than table one.

If u define the size of the applet width tag then table size is not taken.

What do u want ur final output to be

I have a table on the full screen. The applet is running on the right side table. The applet parameter are:
<applet
  CODEBASE      = "."
  CODE          = "application.applet.class"
  NAME          = "myvocwords"
  ARCHIVE      = "/common/applet.jar"
  WIDTH        = 100%
  HEIGHT       = 100%
  HSPACE       = 0
  VSPACE       = 0
  ALIGN        = top
  MAYSCRIPT VIEWASTEXT
>
</applet>
So I would like that my applet takes the whole space in the right table. In 4.7 it's just a tigny 1cm x 1cm applet and on N6 it puts the scrollbars because the applet size will be the full screen and therefore if the left side table is added the size is bigger than the window.

You might try use javascript to work around this bug.

<SCRIPT ID=AutoSizingScript LANGUAGE=JavaScript>
<!--
function window_OnResize()
{
    document.myvocwords.setHTMLSize( innerWidth, innerHeight );
}

function window_OnLoad()
{
    if (navigator.appName == "Netscape" && navigator.appVersion[0] == "4")
       {
           captureEvents(Event.RESIZE);
           onresize=window_OnResize;
       }
}

In your html file,

<BODY BGCOLOR="003668" LANGUAGE="JavaScript" ONLOAD="return window_OnLoad();">

In your applet define a following method.

public void setHTMLSize( String strWidth, String strHeight )
{
         int nWidth  = Integer.parseInt( strWidth  );
         int nHeight = Integer.parseInt( strHeight );
         
         Container container = getParent();
         
         container.setBounds( 0, 0, nWidth, nHeight );
         container.validate();        
}

Hope this helps.
