Hello, does anybody know how to display chinese characters on an applet's GUI? I try to just input chinese unicode in the various GUI components but it sometimes comes out as unicode characters and if if use a chinese viewer program, it comes out as squares.

Is there anyway to have chinese character display in an applet without the use of any external chinese viewer program such as NJStar etc. ?

You need to have the necessary fonts installed not only on your machine but also in the jre being used.
There is doco at java.sun.com on how to make fonts available to the jre.

I have already done that but didnt get anything out.I have tested on the following code:

public class TestApplet extends JApplet
{
  public void init(){
  }

  public void start(){
    String abc = "\u4f60\u597d\u4e16\u754c";
    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, abc);
  }
}

I have also tried compiling using encoding.

Have you tried setting the component to use your chinese font via setFont().
