custom opendialog window focus


    Aug 09 2006 | 9:14 am
    Hello,
    i'm writing a bunch of custom UI objects for handling files and directories. The first one is an opendialog that opens *what and where you want*. Using JFileChooser, if i just create a new one and use showOpenDialog(null), of course max freezes while you look for your file. It's not really a problem, because technically it works, but moving the dialog window leaves garbage on max screen :-( Choosing to create a new thread for this works very well but if, by any lack of luck, i lose the focus on the dialog window, there's no way to find it back in the Windows Taskbar (don't know for osx...). Have to do an alt-tab to grab it. How do i fix this ?
    many thanks in advance

      Workaround : create a custom JFileChooser using JDialog, then use setAlwaysOnTop(true);
