yay, a new bug - I got a knack for finding awt/swing bugs :p
Can somebody else confirm this is a bug? (and does it only affect windoze?)
Just close the dialog a few times(2-3 times on my machine), it will lose its modality (show() will stop blocking).
This is when using WinXP and Java 1.4.x or 1.5.
public class DialogBug
public static void main(String  args)
JDialog fred = new JDialog((JFrame)null, true);
int i = 0;
I guess the problem is caused by show() executing in my Thread, and dispose() is executing in the EventDispatchThread.
However, should this be considered a bug in my code?
If so, 99% of awt code out there is potencially buggy!
(Who realy bothers executing show() on the event dispatch Thread :S)
Ofcourse, because show() blocks for Dialogs, it HAS to be called from a Thread other than the EventDispatchThread.
So, there is NO other way of doing this (apart from hiding the frame, and then disposing of it once show() returns)
I think this realy needs fixing, as its a fundamental of Dialogs.
