Hello,

I have a jsp file which create an applet within html body tags. Also, it is published through Tomcat.

While it is running through Internet Explorer, applet window appears first, then applet window goes behind Internet Explorer window.

How can I appear applet window always on top or in front of IE window ?

Code is like below:

function CreateApplet()
    {
...
...
// Open Applet in separate window
appletWnd = window.open("", "__JVUEWINDOW__", 'resizable=1,width=700,height=600,location=0,menubar=0');
        appletWnd.focus();
        if (appletWnd != null) {
            appletWnd.focus();
...
...
   }

Open in new window


Regards,

Fatih

Try this

var appletWnd; // global var
function CreateApplet() {

  // Open Applet in separate window
  appletWnd = window.open("", "__JVUEWINDOW__", 'resizable,width=700,height=600');
  if (appletWnd) setTimeout(function() {
    appletWnd.focus();
  },100);
}

or have the window focus itself:

if (appletWnd) {
    appletWnd.document.write('<body onload="window.focus()">...</body>');
    appletWnd.document.close();
}

Dear mplungjan,

Thanks for your response first. I tried your code but it couldnt work. So, i decided my code to expand much more for being clearly.

// Function CreateApplet() - Creates the HTML code for the Applet
    function CreateApplet()
    {
	
        var CODEBASE = getCodeBase();
        var FILENAME = '<%= strAppletMsg.toString()  %>';
        var JVUESERVER = '<%= sJVueHost %>';
		
		if(JVUESERVER == ''){
			JVUESERVER = getJVueHost()
		}
        var DMS = getContextWithProtocol() + "/com.cimmetry.vuelink.documentum.DMS";	
        var USERNAME = '<%= strUsername %>';
        var GUIFILE = '<%=guiFile%>';
        var FROMOEVF = '<%=fromOEVF%>';

        // Open Applet in separate window
        appletWnd = window.open("", "__JVUEWINDOW__", 'resizable=1,width=700,height=600,location=0,menubar=0');
        appletWnd.focus();
        if (appletWnd != null) {
            appletWnd.focus();
            var doc = appletWnd.document;
            // If AutoVue Applet window exist, set file.
            var japplet = doc.applets["JVue"];
            if (japplet != null) {
            	if (GUIFILE != 'null') {
					japplet.setGUI(GUIFILE);
				}else {
					japplet.setGUI(''); //testing
				}
                japplet.setFileThreaded(FILENAME);
            } else {
                appletWnd.moveTo(0,0);

                // Fix for Java Plugin on IE only
                if (doc.readyState != null) {
                    // alert('Document not ready '+ doc.readyState);
                    var i = 0;
                    while ( i < 100 && doc.readyState != "complete" ) {
                        appletWnd.setTimeout('dummy()', 1000);
                        i++;
                    }
                }

				
				
                // Otherwise, create new Applet page
                var jVuePage =  '<' + 'HTML>\n' +
                                '<' + 'HEAD>\n' +

                if (!appletWnd.closed) {

This does not work?

if (!appletWnd.closed) {
    doc.open();
    doc.writeln(jVuePage);
    doc.close();
    appletWnd.focus();
}

or

setTimeout(function() { appletWnd.focus(); },100);
