Hi,
I'm working on an assignment for school...one of the applets i have to develop is a colour picker...But unfortunately i'm having some trouble with it...

I would just like to ask if anyone could help me along a little bit and give me some insight as what to do to change this into the non-depreciated format...

I've looked up on the list here, http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/deprecated-list.html, and it states it has been replaced with processMouseEvent(MouseEvent).

I've tried to replace this with this code, but i get error after error..
Could anyone help me with this? I'm hitting a brick wall...
here is the whole applet if you want to have a look...i would REALLY appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction at least, im not having much luck...


Here is my (pathetic) effort of trying to recode my program, but it doesnt work at all anymore...

If anyone wants to look at the original code, feel free to ask!

Thanks for anyone having a look at this, i really REALLY appreciate it!

Thanks in advance!!

Thanks for having a look at it for me!

Yes, i did have a quick look at that page, but i have not yet looked at the source code...

hope it will help!

-Crawf

ah! just had a look at the code! it looks very similar to my code...hopefully everything should go smoothly!

Thanks for the applet, ill let you know if i have any problems! :)

Okay, well that actually didnt help that much...that applet has the same depreciation problem that i have...

public boolean mouseUp(java.awt.Event evt, int jx, int jy)

Thanks for the reference though! :) Does anyone have any ideas on how i could fix this?

Thanks!

I'm sorrie I don't understand, what is deprecated? It works perfectly for me and I'm using the very latest Java development kit? The question is are you?

yes, i am up to date, as of yesterday actually! i double checked just then to verify...thats pretty weird...

regardless, i've figured it out now, and there are no further problems!

Thanks to all who helped!
