Learn Java: Java Applets: AnimatedAd2 applet
The "AnimatedAd" applet - version 2.0
Description - new version
AnimatedAd2 is based on our original AnimatedAd applet.
Please see that page for a complete description of how this
applet got started.
AnimatedAd2 differs from
the original AnimatedAd in two
primary ways. First, when the user places their mouse over the
ad, the animation stops, and the random text follows the
cursor as the user moves it. Second, AnimatedAd2 writes the
same text to the status line of the user's browser.
The intent of this applet is to show how Java ads can be
different and improve upon animated GIF images.
The AnimatedAd2 applet lets you
control the following parameters through HTML
- Mouse tracking new!
- Writing to the browser status line new!
- The background color
- Text strings to display
- An array of possible font colors
- An array of possible font styles

- Min and max coordinates for the text strings
