Re: How to convert java applet to java application

Hi,

Could you try the code? It does not work.


Hi,

Is that possible to convert a Java Applet Code to a Java
Application
Code
without doing big modification to my existing Java applet code? Please give
me some guides...

Thank you!

No problem. Just add the following code (with your class name
modifications) to your class that extends Applet:

public static void main(String args[])
{
YourAppletClassName applet = new YourAppletClassName();
Frame frame = new Frame("Needs a Title");
frame.addWindowListener(new windowListener());

// set the layout and add the applet
frame.setLayout(new GridBagLayout());
GridBagConstraints constraints = new GridBagConstraints
();
constraints.gridx = 0;
constraints.gridy = 0;
constraints.weightx = 100;
constraints.weighty = 100;
constraints.anchor = GridBagConstraints.CENTER;
constraints.fill = GridBagConstraints.BOTH;
frame.add(applet, constraints);
frame.pack();
frame.setSize(850, 575);
frame.validate();

// Center the window
Dimension screenSize = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit
().getScreenSize();
Dimension frameSize = frame.getSize();
if (frameSize.height > screenSize.height)
{
frameSize.height = screenSize.height;
}
if (frameSize.width > screenSize.width)
{
frameSize.width = screenSize.width;
}
frame.setLocation((screenSize.width -
frameSize.width) / 2, (screenSize.height - frameSize.height) / 2);
frame.setVisible(true);
}

Roughly, you got to change "container" from JApplet to JFrame and you have
to set the size of a JFrame and set it to visible. Also there is no JApplet
life cycle methods like init() and start() methods but the Java application
main(String[] args) method.

You also need to remember to call init(), start(), stop() and
destroy() for the applet (or at least, those of them that you
have overridden in your applet class), the same way an applet
container would.

Here's an example taken from some code that I wrote many moons
ago (using AWT):

public class MyApplet extends Applet {
public void init () { ... }
public void start() { ... }
public void stop () { ... }

public static void main (String args[]) {
final MyApplet app = new MyApplet();
app.init();
app.start();
Frame f = new Frame("Title");
f.addWindowListener (
new WindowAdapter() {
public void windowClosing(WindowEvent e) {
app.stop();
app.destroy();
System.exit(0);
}
}
);
f.setSize (WIDTH, HEIGHT);
f.add("Center", app);
f.show();
}
}

I too need JAppet to be JFrame

For class I was told to change my JApplet to JFrame
I have one week to figure this out, any help would be appreciated.
Code:
import java.io.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import javax.swing.event.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.text.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.awt.Color.*;
