My assignment firstly show a JDialog to config the connection to local or remote database ( at this time , the main JFrame is not visible ). But if i click other program ( even DOS console ) before the JDialog appear , the JDialog will not be shown to user . I think there may be some things wrong with the setting of this JDialog's Z-order . please help me . BTW , i set the JDialog shown modally.

I *think* this will accomplish what you need, coercing the dialog to come to the front while recognizing that it is modal.
Another possibility is to overload the setVisible
method of the dialog to invoke the superclass setVisible but also add a toFront().
Two ideas off the top of my head....
