      Description



      Name: vi73552 Date: 05/07/99


      Right now, modal JDialogs block access to all other windows.

      A nice feature would be to have two types of modality. One that
      would continue to have the dialog be modal to all awt windows,
      and another that would make the dialog modal only to its parent
      frame. The latter would allow other frames to be accessed even
      though one frame may have a modal dialog.

      I currently have a JDialog with a button that launches our help
      system. The help system is inside a JFrame because we want our
      users to be able to toggle back and forth between our application
      and the help system. But when a modal JDialog is present, our
      help window can not gain focus.
