JOptionPane.showInternalXxxDialog and window icon

Hello,

working with JDesktopPane/JInternalFrame, I want to show a simple information message in a modal(!) dialog. According to the docs, this should be done with JOptionPane.showInternalMessageDialog(). This works fine, but as the window icon (the icon for window decoration in the upper left corner of the dialog) the typical Java coffee cup is displayed instead of my frame icon.
I could implement the message dialog as a JInternalFrame and customize the icon, but this dialog wouldn't be modal. So is there any smart possibility to have the frame icon (or a icon of my choice) as the JOptionPane message dialogs window icon?

Regards,
Christian

Have you set the dialog's parent as your current frame?
