Here's a question...I'm required to use swing in my project, however I'm also using an active renderer. So basically I have a thread calling "paintComponents" at some target fps in order to draw my "rendered" area as well as a minimal gui. This concept is close to the way JFreeRails operates.
Everything seems to work ok, until I needed a modal dialog. Since my rendering thread is synchronized with the system event queue, any modal dialog kills my ability to draw anything...thus making my tool nothing more than a glorified "window eraser."
Has anybody encountered anything like this? And if so, is this something I just have to live with?
Questions/Comments are more than welcome.
