Please tell me what is wrong in my using cardlayout?

Java program:
---------------------------------

import java.applet.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;

public class Simple extends JApplet{

    Page   p1;
    Page   p2;
    CardLayout clayout;
    Container c;


    public void init() {

       c = this.getContentPane();
        clayout = new CardLayout();

        p1 = new Page(this, "Page one");
        p2 = new Page(this, "page two");

        c.setLayout(clayout);

        clayout.addLayoutComponent(p1, "p1");
        clayout.addLayoutComponent(p2, "p2");
    }


    public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent e){
        CardLayout myLayout = (CardLayout) this.getContentPane().getLayout();
        myLayout.next(this.getContentPane());
        if (e.getSource() == p1){
            p1.label.setText("Page 1 been clicked");
        } else if (e.getSource() == p2) {
            p2.label.setText("Page 2 been clicked");
        }
    }

    public void mouseEntered(MouseEvent e){
    }

    public void mouseExited(MouseEvent e){
    }

    public void mousePressed(MouseEvent e){
    }
   
    public void mouseReleased(MouseEvent e){
    }

    public void paint(Graphics g) {
        super.paint(g);
    }
}

class Page extends JPanel {

    JLabel label;
    Simple sim;

    public Page(Simple sim, String s){
        this.sim = sim;
        label = new JLabel(s);
        //label.setBackground(Color.blue);
        //label.setBound(20, 20, 150, 100);
        this.setBackground(Color.pink);
        this.setLayout(null);
        this.add(label);
    }

    public void paint(Graphics g) {
        super.paint(g);
    }
}

html file:
----------------------

<html>
<head><title>simple</title></head>
<body>
<applet code = "Simple.class" width = "570" height = "500" >
</applet>

First, don't add your components directly to the CardLayout. Add them to the contentPane and it will inform the CardLayout:

    c.add("p1", p1);
    c.add("p2", p2);

Second, JApplet does not implement the MouseListener interface. So even though you've implemented all the methods, it can't be used as a MouseListener. So the first thing you need to do is add the interface to the class declaration:

    public class Simple extends JApplet implements MouseListener {

Second, you have to add the MouseListener to components that can have mouse events. In your case, you seem to want to get events on the Pages so you have to add your Simple instance as a MouseListener on those components:

    p1.addMouseListener(this);
    p2.addMouseListener(this);

Finally, setting the Page layout to 'null' is preventing your JLabel from displaying. I'm not sure why you were doing it but it doesn't seem necessary.

After making these changes, your applet would appear to do what you intended. Here is the revised code:

import java.applet.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;

public class Simple extends JApplet implements MouseListener {

   Page   p1;
   Page   p2;
   CardLayout clayout;
   Container c;


   public void init() {
       c = this.getContentPane();
       clayout = new CardLayout();
       c.setLayout(clayout);
       p1 = new Page(this, "Page one");
       p2 = new Page(this, "page two");
       p1.addMouseListener(this);
       p2.addMouseListener(this);
       c.add("p1", p1);
       c.add("p2", p2);
   }


   public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent e){
       CardLayout myLayout = (CardLayout) this.getContentPane().getLayout();
       myLayout.next(this.getContentPane());
       if (e.getSource() == p1){
           p1.label.setText("Page 1 been clicked");
       } else if (e.getSource() == p2) {
           p2.label.setText("Page 2 been clicked");
       }
   }

   public void mouseEntered(MouseEvent e){
   }

   public void mouseExited(MouseEvent e){
   }

   public void mousePressed(MouseEvent e){
   }

   public void mouseReleased(MouseEvent e){
   }

   public void paint(Graphics g) {
       super.paint(g);
   }
}

class Page extends JPanel {

   JLabel label;
   Simple sim;

   public Page(Simple sim, String s){
       this.sim = sim;
       label = new JLabel(s);
       //label.setBackground(Color.blue);
       //label.setBound(20, 20, 150, 100);
       this.setBackground(Color.pink);
       //this.setLayout(null);
       this.add(label);
   }

   public void paint(Graphics g) {
       super.paint(g);
   }
}
