ModalDialog and applets

I need to have a modal dialog popup on top of the aplet that is running in a browser.  When the user makes an error, I need to tell them about it, but the only ModalDialog I can find requires a Frame object to be passed in to the constructor.  The othere option was to use my own dialog, but it would get lost behind the browser because I could not make it Modal.
How do I get a modal dialog to popo up on top of an applet.
Thanks,
Georg

Two ways to do it.  If you search up the hierarchy starting with your applet, you will find a frame:

Container cont = getParent();
while (!(cont == null))
{
  if (cont instanceof Frame)
  {
    break;
  }
  cont = cont.getParent();
}

Or you can fake it: create a new Frame and pass it to the dialog's constructor:

super (new Frame(), "My Dialog, true);
