The completed applet is given below.

In this example applet, the x and y values for the start of the String are written as arithmetic expressions. The expression for x starts the string at the point half the string size to the left of half the drawing area's width. The expression for y starts the string at the point half the character size down from half the drawing area's height. Because going down the page means increasing Y, 10/2 is added to the center Y value. (There is a better way to do this, but it uses a few more methods.)

import java.applet.Applet; import java.awt.*; public class AnotherHello extends Applet { public void paint ( Graphics gr ) { setBackground( Color.lightGray ); gr.drawString("Hello", (300/2 - 40/2), (150/2 + 10/2) ); } }
