Porting from Swing to AWT?

Discussion in 'Java' started by Ramon F Herrera, Jun 30, 2003.

  1. Just when I became proficient with Swing, I found out that
    MS IE doesn't support it and hence I will have to downgrade
    my applets to AWT. I use JBuilder 8 and have been looking
    around the "Choice" and "Popup" classes, which seem to be
    the predecessors of JComboBox.

    Is there some tutorial or source code available on how
    to implement Swing-less drop down boxes, with events
    and all?

    TIA,

    -Ramon F. Herrera

    What's the plan when IE doesn't even know what an AWT Applet is?

    a) MS IE does support Swing with the proper plug-in (for the moment), and

    b) you should switch to Mozilla or Opera, anyway. Internet Explorer has
    dropped the ball and fallen behind with regard to support of web
    standards (see also: <http://www.webstandards.org/>).

    Completely off topic, but maybe interesting:
    New versions of Internet Explorer (7 and higher) won't be available
    as a seperate download anymore. They will only be installed together
    with a (new) version of Windows.
    Furthermore, it is not possible anymore to install Internet Explorer
    from the website on Windows 98, not even version 5 (though it
    keeps working and being updated if you have already installed it)
