So I want to have a JDialog whose job is to connect to an external device. While the dialog is up, the application should be stuck on the dialog. This I understand to be 'modal.' The problem is that my modal dialog is even blocking itself out of doing anything. The Code:
It prints "1", but doesn't print "2" until the dialog is closed. How do I make it so the connect dialog is locked as the enabled window, but without locking itself out?
Edit: It occurs to me that this might just not be the job of a dialog. Can I make a JFrame that will be 'modal' as I understand the word? [ June 06, 2008: Message edited by: Nicholas George ]

Figured this one out. Just have to handle things with events...
