Hello All,

Forgive my ignorance...

I am creating a simple program that draws a simple house. My problem is I need it to run as an application as well as an applet from the same code..I think I am on the right track..Any help would be greatly appreciated check out my code to see if you can see the problems I cannot.

So far It will run as an applet, but so far when I execute it as an application it just produces the frame with nothing in it..

DrawHouse drawHouse = new DrawHouse(); //Create an instance of DrawHouse

//Add the new instance into the frame
// getContentPane().setBackground( Color.WHITE );
f.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
f.add( drawHouse );
f.setSize(600,600);
f.setVisible(true);

//An "anonymous" inner class used to close the window
f.addWindowListener( new WindowAdapter()
{
public void windowClosing(WindowEvent we)
{
System.exit(0);
}
}
);

drawHouse.init(); //Call the applet's init method
} //End of main

g2d.setColor( Color.BLUE );

I finally figured it out....at 5:00 in the a.m.
