How do I force a child panel back to the foreground. It is a child of a parent JFrame. A modal is called for an user action, and since the Parent is used as a parameter, the parent is called to the foreground. I want the child to remain in the foreground.

You should make the modal dialog a child of the panel you want in front. And by panel, I assume from your description this in in a seperate JFrame. You can also call toFront() to move a window to the front.
