Changing Applet’s Background Color

Changing Applet’s Background Color

Question:
Can you tell me how to change the background color of an applet from the normal grey to white? I would greatly appreciate it.

Answer:
Try putting the line:

   setBackground(Color.white);

in your init() method. Java is case-sensitive, sobe careful with your capitalization.

Java has several other pre-defined colors (red, blue, etc.), oryou can make your own by specifying the amount of red, green, andblue respectively (0 – 255):

   setBackground(new Color(0, 0, 0));
