obvious method would bt reload the page iwth/without the applet tag.

Javascript you should be able to do similiar, haven't tried it in practice though.

You could use a <div> tag and show hide the applet code. This solution is similar to dynamically showing/hiding text, although I am not sure if this will work in applets, since the applet tag will be there and therefore it will be loaded. Give it a try and see if it works.

Use this, wrap the applet tag in a div:

<div id="theApplet" style="visibility:hidden;">
<applet></applet>
</div>

And use the following javascript to hide/show it:

function hideApplet(){
document.getElementByID("therApplet").style.visibility = "show";
}

function showApplet(){
document.getElementByID("therApplet").style.visibility = "hidden";
}

I think, setVisisble() method will work for you and u can call this method by javascript.

let me explain in detail. let say I have a div and applet in jsp. the visibility of the div is controlled by the applet. When there is new incoming msg, the applet need change the visibility of the div to visible.
