Changing cursor in an Application/Applet

Posted by Raj Kogs on April 17, 2000 at 5:09 PM

I am using Swing 1.0.3 with JDK 1.1.7(Visual Age 2)....
I try to change the cursor to busy cursor when a button is pressed...IT doesn't work for the applet...but does work when it runs as an Application..
if (Context.getProperty("frame") == null)
(( Context.getProperty"applet")).setCursor(Cursor.getPredefinedCursor(Cursor.WAIT_CURSOR));

if (Context.getProperty("frame") != null)
((JFrame) Context.getProperty("frame")).setCursor(Cursor.getPredefinedCursor(Cursor.WAIT_CURSOR));

Here Context is a hashtable which has handles of both the applet and the JFrame in which the applet sits when running as an Application.

Thanks much.
