7.3.1. Inserting Java applets and ActiveX controls

Applets are small applications that perform specific operations when inserted on a Web page. To insert a Java applet on your Web page, follow these steps:

  1. In the Design view, open the Web page on which you want to insert an applet.

  2. Choose Insert Web Component to open the Insert Web Component dialog box and then click Advanced Controls.

  3. In the Choose a control list, choose Java Applet and then click OK. The Java Applet Properties dialog box opens, as shown in Figure 7.10, where you can specify the source and settings for the applet you want to use.
