What if the FileDialog is invoked from a JDialog???

If I do this:
FileDialog fd = new FileDialog(new JFrame(),"Save As",FileDialog.SAVE);

this is ok BUT if the user switches to a diff aplication (say IE) the FileDialog is going backwords and the application is 'frozen'.

and i cant palce a JDialog in the constructor?

FileDialog fd = new FileDialog(???,"Save As",FileDialog.SAVE);

I tried to get the root frame with

Component c = SwingUtilities.getRoot((Component)e.getSource());
JFrame frame = (JFrame)c;

but it doesn't work because the 'rootFrame' is a dialog.


Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
