I have a JDialog box which requests the user for username and password. This JDialog is on top of a JFrame. My problem is if I go to resize the JFrame or click on it, it (the JDialog) disappears. Once I move the JFrame or close I realize the JDialog is under. How do I maintain the Jdialog on top. Please can someone help.
I have tried using setNextFocusableComponent() and nothing seems to work.

Are you setting the parent to null? You have to specify what the Dialog sits on top of.
Does that make sense?
Hope so.

Happy Coding,

JDialog - use this constructor
public JDialog(Dialog owner,
boolean modal)
Creates a modal or non-modal dialog without a title and with the specified owner dialog.
Parameters:
owner - the Dialog from which the dialog is displayed
modal - true for a modal dialog, false for one that allows others windows to be active at the same time
hope this helps
