Applet Loader Splash Screen
I've written an applet that is about 300 k (pretty large over a 28.8
modem), and I want to have some type of loading screen. Does anyone
know if there's already been a generic class written that puts up a "Now
loading" splash screen with a progress bar? Or is this something I'd
have to write myself?
Re: Applet Loader Splash Screen
There is a progressbar functionality available in Swing, but there is some
coding that you have to do by your own.
One of the tricks to ve used is that you will need to dynamically load your
application separatly using Class.forName("classname"). This means that you
will need to make a dynamic loader application with progressbar separatly,
while making sure that there are no references to classes of your main
application (by not using the import statement that loads your java
library). You will need to use a generic class or interface to interact with
your dynamically loaded class.
There must be some examples available, but dont have them right now.
