Proper way of dismissing DialogFragment while application is in background

I started using DialogFragment, because they are working nicely through orientation changes, and stuff. But there is nasty problem I encountered.

I have

AsyncTask
that shows progress DialogFragment and dismisses it
onPostExecute
. Everything works fine, except when
onPostExecute
happens while application is in background (after pressing Home button, for example). Then I got this error on DialogFragment dismissing - "
Can not perform this action after onSaveInstanceState
". Doh. Regular dialogs works just fine. But not FragmentDialog.

So I wonder, what is the proper way of dismissing DialogFragment while application is in background? I haven't really worked with Fragments a lot, so I think that I'm just missing something.

Answer

DialogFragment has a method called dismissAllowingStateLoss()
