Hi there. I have a JFrame I created that has a table in it. A user can click on a row in that table and it brings up a JDialog so they can change the contents of the row. At the same time, the user had previously opened a different JFrame that serves as an inquiry for them.
The problem they are running into, is when the JDialog is up, they want to be able to switch over to the inquiry to look something up , then go back to the frame with the JDialog to enter information. However since the dialog is modal, it won't let them bring up the inquiry frame until they close the dialog. How can I keep the dialog in focus on the JFrame it is in, but allow the users to view other frames?
