I want to change my applet background. I use "this.setBackground(new
Color(20,80,120))" in init method and also in start method. But I
just see this color in my applet background for a moment in inited
applet time and after that I can't see this color.what is the problem?
Can I use an image for my applet background?

Override paint method and then set background  color inside it.
The code looks like this:

public void paint(Graphics g) {
Graphics2D g2d = (Graphics2D) g;// optional but useful
this.setBackground(Color.RED); //or whatever you prefer

I hope it will help.
