Width and height of java applet

Hi,

When I embed a java applet into a webpage, I use:

    <applet code=whatever.class width=402 height=402>

Inside the java applet class, I can get the bounds by doing:

    bounds().width;
    bounds().height;

Is there anyway to override the size of the applet as rendered in the html page? I mean if in my applet class, I want my applet to really be 500 x 500, can I do something like:

    bounds().setNewWidth(500);

or is it just static after you've loaded the page and you're stuck?

Thanks

The browser determines the size of embedded elements, including applets.  If you did want to change the size, you'd have to do it external to the applet, in the HTML itself.

I doubt very much that DHTML (Javascript, etc) would work, but if your HTML is generated by PHP, JSP, ASP, etc., it can be done by generating HTML with different height and width attributes for the applet element.

Nope, you are stuck.  You can, however, create an additional panel inside the applet and change the size of that panel.  To the HTML page you would still have the same sized applet, but the applet itself could be drawn in the small space.

You can, in fact, use javascript to create the Java applet section of your HTML document and then use the javascript to control the size you with to appear.  The key to making this work is to make sure you use javascript to generate the entire applet tag and all of its parts.  If you try to use javascript to only change the height and width attributes it won't work.

Good luck!
