    Image won't display in Applet

    Hi people,

    I'm trying to display an image (gif image) in an applet,
    however, it does not show up when the applet is run.

    Here is my code:
    import java.applet.Applet;
    import java.awt.Graphics;
    import java.awt.Image;

    // An applet that loads an image and
    // displays it.

    public class DrawImage extends Applet
    Image image; //an 'Image' object

    //initialise applet
    public void init()
    //Load Image into object 'image'
    //URL url , String file
    image = getImage(getCodeBase(), "gifpic.gif");

    //applet's paint function
    public void paint(Graphics g)
    if(image != null)
    { //if image is found then drawImage()
    g.drawImage(image, 0, 0, this);
    { //if image is not found, then display message
    System.out.println("image not found");

    Be sure the image is loacted on the same server the applet is being loaded from. Be sure you have given the correct path to the file. For example, if the gifpic.gif is in /images, make the filename in your applet "/images/gifpic.gif".

    Also, the check for whether the image is null will not work. Checking on whether an image has been loaded is much more complicated than that. I'm sorry that I don't recall what is involved. I haven't done this in a very long time.
