I am working on java applet and trying to implement the following.

The top-level window has a File menu containing a menu item "Exit". When "Exit" is invoked the application will close the window (the user sees an empty applet page with just the title and header)

I did implement the appearance file menu and exit option, but does nothing.)
How do I implement the above "Exit" behavior?

Thank you for help

If it's a JFrame or Frame, just do

frame.dispose();

Remember, you can't do System.exit in an applet

Use showDocument() to load a new empty page.

Or if you don't want to switch page for some reason then remove the content from your applets root pane.

Have you got an applet inside a frame? What is the relationship between application/applet or frame/applet?
