    Default Facing problem with open modeless dialog from modal window

    Hi All,

    In my application, I have to open a modeless dialog from a modal window. As in windows say Notepad: File->Open - the dialog is modal (browser window). Open the property page for any file from the “Open” dialog - property page is non-modal & can be accessed. The “Open” dialog can be closed but the property page still remains open.
    I have tried but if property dialog is made modal then this behavior cannot be achieved & if made modeless then it cannot be accessed.

    Can anyone please help me??
    Thanks & Regards,

    Welcome to Java Programming Forums. Could you please post the code you are using so we can see the problem. Also this is not an Eclipse question, it's a Java question.

    P.S Please move this JavaPF
