I am using NetBeans 4.1
I have some problem in coding
When I want to get the Parameter for the applet in GLPanel.java
I use the code like follow

String String Title;
TempTitle = getParameter("as");

When I compile it, it got a error
the error message is
cannot find symbol
method getParameter(java.lang.String)
location: class com.touchgraph.graphlayout.GLPanel

How can I solve the problem?
THANK YOU
