It’s not enough to create the Button (or any other control). You must also call the Applet add( ) method to cause the button to be placed on the applet’s form. This seems a lot simpler than it is, because the call to add( ) actually decides, implicitly, where to place the control on the form. Controlling the layout of a form is examined shortly.
