Customise "Applet myapplet started" status message?

New to both Java and the IDEA here having taken over an existing project, so thanks in advance for your patience!

When I start the applet there is a message in the status bar : Applet myapplet started.

How can I customise this?

Im pretty sure that this is a browser thing (im assuming that you are testing in a browser), not an IDEA or Java thing. The status bar is displaying the status of objects. For example is there is an error it appears there too.

There are wasy to get around this but they are a big hacky. Have a look at the JavaScript function "window.status" and page.onLoad etc. Try googling "javascript status bar". Some places use a loop that continually writes this so that it always appears.
