Focus question

Hi all!!!
I wrote a small database and I want the errors to be describen in a small independent window which requests the focus completly.There is an error message (in that error window)and a small "ok" button, and I want to disable focus to my application completly until that button is pressed( then the error window disappears).I thought about the requestFocus() method, but it doesn't disable access to the other windows.I hope I made a clear explain ;-) English isn't my native language.
Thank's for help

Try a JOptionPane or some other dialog they are modal so will block the rest of the app until they go away.
hope that helps
