I'd like to know if there is a way to keep a Frame window
always on top in an applet.  My applet runs as a Frame an
opens several other frames that I'd like to keep on top.

I'm aware that Window has toBack and toFront methods.  When
would I call the toFront?

I got the same problem: i wanted to display "modal " frame from applet.
I'm calling toFront() when my frame is losing the focus. If the
user wants to close the frame, i'm setting a flag so that toFront() is not called.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

I tried this, and it works for Netscape Commincator 4.0, it does not work with IE 3.02.  (Because microsoft's implementation of the method "toFront" is broken.)

While the techique works, with Netscape toFront also grabs the focus again, so this would only be useful for modal dialogs.  I had hoped to use it for non-modal information windows.  Oh well.
