Spawing an applet in a window of a certain size.

Hi there experts, well I am trying to popup a new Java applet that is in a webpage, but I would like to limit the browser window to be a specific size with no File menu, explorer bars, address bars or anything.  Just a generic browser window with my applet in it?  Is that possible from Java?  Right now I can call

         try
         {
            getAppletContext().showDocument(new URL(URL_ac),"HTML frame ID");
         }
         catch (MalformedURLException ex)
         {
         }

but that displays a full sized window with all the toolbars.  Thanks in advance.

Change your page with the applet in:

<html>
...
<body onLoad="window.resizeTo(640,480)" >
    <applet width="100%" height="100%">
    ...
   </applet>
</body>

This resizes the window to 640 x 480

I do not think you can do it from inside your applet. What you could do would be to follow objects' suggestion and add a few more code that it will make it look like your are only creating one window.

 try
         {
            getAppletContext().showDocument(new URL("myfile.html"),"HTML frame ID");
         }
         catch (MalformedURLException ex)
         {
         }

myfile.html

<html>
   <head>
   <script language="JavaScript">
   function showApplet()
   {
       appletWindow = window.open('page.html','popupPage','width=500,height=500,resizable=no,scrollbars=no,
                                  menubar=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,status=no');
       window.close();
   }
   </script>
   </head>
   <body onLoad="showApplet();">
   </body>
</html>

page.html

<html>
   <body>
      <applet.....>
   </body>
</html>

So you basically you load up an HTML file, from inside this file you popup another window with the properties you want and which have the applet and then you close the parent window.

try using showDocument to display:

URL_ac = "javascript:window.open('page.html','popupPage','width=500,height=500,resizable=no,scrollbars=no,menubar=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,status=no'";

Ok, I tried using the
URL_ac = "javascript:window.open('page.html','popupPage','width=500,height=500,resizable=no,scrollbars=no,menubar=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,status=no'";

But it didn't work.  Do I have to do something to enable Javascript?

Look at the link I posted above. It shows you how you can call javascript from within an applet.

Another way is to create an applet .. make a width of 0 and height of 0 .. so that it is hidden from your actual screen.

and from within this Applet class you can create an instance of a Frame and make it with the size 500x500.. Program all functionality within this frame class.
