"Can applet field sizes be varied somehow?"
Posted by Scott Benjamin on Sep-19-01 at 07:06 PM (EST)
Hi,
I'd like to shorten the width of a displayed input field (the Qty field -- we never have over 2 digits entered!) I'm only displaying 1 or 2 fields of the applet, and have shortened the applet length in my hmtl, but it's still too long. You can see my test page if you wish at: site33086.dellhost.com/foods-main.html

Short of downloading Java 1.0, messing with the ShopInputclass codes and recompiling (yikes!), is there some way I can do this? I need to shorten them even more for a 4-column product layout.

Thanks for your reply.
Regards,
Scott

Unfortunately, there is no way at this time adjust the size of the quantity entry box.... at least not without:

1) Following the instructions in the uShop Programmer's Guide to write your own custom applet. (which you already mentioned you didn't want to have to download/mess with the Java 1.0 compiler)

or

2) Following the instructions in the uShop Programmer's Guide (and/or the JavaScript examples in the uShop Applet Reference) to create your own customer JavaScript. (which you already mentioned that you didn't care for JavaScript).

But those are pretty much the only choices if you want to make the quantity entry box smaller. On a side note, you may not want to cut the applet width so close anyway... as some browsers will display the applets differently than others. Internet Explorer, for instance, tends to use a narrower font than Netscape.... so you wouldn't want to optimize for just IE users. It's really not recommended to cut it too close anyway.
