passing an HTML query string to an applet?
Posted on 2003-03-16
I am loading a page with an applet. I want to pass a PARAM/VALUE to the applet with the name of the page that called it and some other data (IP address). I thoought that I can use a query string for this, though I am not sure how.
This is what I have. I have two frame page. Left frame is for navigation. Right is for display. I have a navigation folder in my left frame. When I glick on an item in it I want to load a page with an applet in the right frame. I want to pass an IP address to the applet (the applet will use this IP address for its internal work). I want to reuse the same applet page and not to hardcode the IP address with PARAM.
How can my applet know what "called" it?
