Hello, i've searched for this in the forum but i didn't find anything usefull.
What i want is to make a JFrame to be always on top but not stealing the focus.
Scenario: I have a maximized app and i have a smaller jframe on top. When i click in the "main" application i want my JFrame to be on top of it but without stealing the focus from the application.
I have this code:

Can you help me?
Thanks!

Use JDialog rather than JFrame, and no need to implement FocusListener.
Here is a small example..

Can't use JDialog... Doesn't have a maximize button :roll:
It really has to be a JFrame.
Thanks anyway

Sounds like a job for JInternalFrame.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
