Thanks, I will get the appletviewer

Posted by Adam Knutson on December 20, 2001 at 3:40 PM

You say the appletviewer COMES with the JDK? haha, I might already have it.. As it is quite annoying using IE to preview an applet while trying to debug an applet because if I recompile the .java I'm trying to test I have to rename it every time I want to test it because (Sun's JRE or IE) keeps the old class cached and won't refresh it!

As for the checkerboard.. I fixed it soon after that, but now I'm working on an animated one which I've almost got finished, hehe a few errors though :)

> Running the code on my machine produced (one column) of a checkerboard.

> You're probably getting a gray box because something is going wrong while your web browser is trying to load the applet. I would highly suggest that you try it first using the appletviewer program that comes with Sun's JDK. It gives more helpful error messages.

> If you would like more help with getting your applet running, let me know.

> Once you get it up and running, look at the yIn variable to see why it's only drawing one column of the checkerboard.

> Good Luck!
