FAQ 1b Updated: 4/19/00 >>>> How Do I Add An Applet? ============================ The first step is get an applet that you can add. Fortunately, I have one available for you to download and play with. Download this file: life.class Put the class file into the same directory with your web page. Now add the following lines to your page: <applet code="life.class" name="life" width=320 height=350> </applet> When you load your page, the game of life should appear. It has buttons and some dark spaces. Unfortunately, the game is mostly WHITE so it is hard to see on the default background. Upgrade your web page with these lines: <table border=2><tr><td> <applet code="life.class" name="life" width=320 height=350> </applet> </td></tr></table> NOW your applet is surrounded by a table, this actually looks pretty cool. I do it with ALL my applets. >>>> How do I make my own Class Files? ====================================== Read the rest of the FAQ's, that's what they are all about. >>>> It's Not Working! What did I do wrong? =========================================== I can't tell you exactly what you did, but I can help you find the problem. All new browsers have a JAVA CONSOLE. When you open the java console, it tells you about any java errors your page is getting. You can find the Java Console in Netscape4+ by going through these menus: 'Communicator: Tools: Java Console'. In IExplorer5+ you can get a Java Console, but you need to Enable it first. Go to these menus 'Tools: Internet Options: Advanced: Enable Java Console'. Then restart your browser. NOW you can open it with 'View: Java Console'. The java console will give you more information on how the applet call is failing. Maybe this will be enough to fix things.
