I keep getting Nul pointer exceptions when i try to load the base for an image. However i know that if i put this.getDocumentBase(); i shouldnt get a nul pointer but however when i g.drawImage (my_gif,0,0,this); i still get the error.

I knew about getCodeBase(), however im using readytoprogram (yes im still learning) and i dont use jApplets. I still get an exception when i use getCodeBase().

Is there a file or something i have to import to use getCodeBase()?

thanks
