How to Remove Flashing in an Applet

flashing. It solves the problem to some extent but not 100% perfect in case
of flashing. I am giving the following tricks to solve the flashing problem
in animation :
1) Use Media Tracker for downloading the images.
2) Use double buffering.
3) Change the default background color of the applet to the color of
you Canvas by using setBackground(Color of the Canvas) in the init method of
4) In an animation if you are updating only part of a area use
repaint(x1,y2,x2,y2) instead of repaint().
