The reason is that with this tag I was not able to access anything and was given message that applet object does not exist but
in the IE status bar I see it is initiated, started, loaded.

Thank you.

<APPLET NAME='screenCapture' Code='ScreenCaptureApplet'  CODEBASE='../classes' width=100 height=100></APPLET>

and in the java script

document.screenCapture.captureImage(00,100,100,100,imgdescription);
                        

here captureImage is a method written inside the Applet..

I know it works

does your applet require the java plugin?  If it does then the <applet> tag will not work unless the user has the plugin setup as their default vm.

> and was given message that applet object does not exist

where are you getting this message.

So... here is the code :

<%
String someID = request.getParameter( "id" );
if ( someID == null ) someID = "-1";
%>
<html>
<head>
<title>MyApplet</title>
 

<script language="javascript">

function getmyid()
{

alert("started");

// I was trying too
//var appObj = document.getElementById('myapplet');
//var myid = appObj.getId();


// message that does not exist


var myid = document.myapplet.getID();


alert("here it is : " + myid);

}

</script>

</head>
<body bgcolor="#002341">
<img src="Submit.gif" onClick="getmyid()"></img>

<center>
 
<OBJECT classid = "clsid:CAFEEFAC-0014-0001-0000-ABCDEFFEDCBA" codebase = "http://java.sun.com/products/plugin/autodl/jinstall-1_4_1-windows-i586.cab#Version=1,4,1,0" WIDTH="100%" HEIGHT="100%">

Are you sure that your applet is getting loaded???
with the code given here, it looks like you are trying to load a applet from Sun site and not your own applet...

If your applet is getting loaded then you shd see a little coffee cup in your taskbar area ....

i DO see that cup and message in status bar "myapplet is loaded" and it is working fine.

The problem is that I need to access class from this applet. I was thing that the problem was due to <OBJECT> tag use.

When use <APPLET> tag instead it does not load and I see "red cross" image in the left upper conner.


Please help.

that means the class that you are loading is not an APPLET...!! go to java.sun site and look the documentation of the example class that you are loading....
it is quite possible that its not a applet but just a class and which case it will work with OBJECT tag but won't with APPLET..

Since you're using JSP, why don't you use the <jsp:plugin > action tag?.  In using it, you have to define the classname, among other things.  The beauty of this action tag is that the HTML code for the applet will be created to fit the browser you're working with, i.e., it will use the OBJECT tag or APPLET tag depending on the browser you're using.

You can also define parameters within the tag using the <jsp:params> tag.

Hope this helps.

Its more what vm's are being used that dictates which tag to use.
