Java Question

how to show JOptionPane on the top of all windows

I have created a DialogUtil which shows numbers of JOptionPan in different situation.
sometimes in my action class call to this method with null parameters as below.

DialogUtil.showNotExist(null,xml.getName().concat(" is null or"));


In this case JOptionPane does not appears on the top of window.

How can I add something to JOptionPane to appears always on the top?

public static void showNotExist(JPanel panel, String action) {
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(panel, new JLabel(action.concat(" doesn't exist."), 2));
}

Answer

there are two possible issues

  • JOptionPane is called out of EDT, then only toolbar (caption that came from Native OS is visible on the screen, RootPane isn't visible) is visible on the screen

  • there you can to test JOptionPanes features, where JOptionPane.showInternalMessageDialog() makes troubles in all cases that there is another JDialog with setModal(true), real reason I dont know, same should be with ModalityTypes

  • not possible to showing two JOptionPanes on the screen in the same time
