you can use js to call the applet to return the parameter but why would u need to as the jsp page already has the value?

The problem is that this applet when it is used by the user may modify this CustID ...so I need to know the new one.

How exactly I can do that ?

Add a public method to your applet to return the custid, and call the applet from js to retrieve it.

Was just asking because it may affect the way you achieve it :)

You should either call the applet using javascript,
or have the applet call a javascript function.
Whichever is most appropriate in your situation.

I was trying to do that:

like you adviced :

in my javascript which I have tried to run directly and from .js
function getnewid()
{
var newid = document.myApplet.appletmethod();
alert ("here it is : " + newid);
}

it is in <img src="mybutton.gif" onclick="getnewid();">

when I click nothing is happening...no errors no nothing. I have inserted MAYSCRIPT in the CODE line but nothing is going on.

Hmmmm. ??? Please .

Perhaps img tag does not support onclick, test with:

function getnewid()
{
alert ("Here");
}

Objects :),

I told you that I was trying it and there is no alert.
May be it has to do with JSP ?

forget about it.

try to change you name of applet form myApplet to myapplet (all lowercase). or use document.applets[0]
make sure the method name must be exactly the same as you defined in applet, case sensitive.
