Hi all,
       The login screen of an application need to have a icon on the dialog's top left(left to the title). I am using JDialog for the login screen. If this JDialog is resizeble the dialoge automatically take the icon from its parennt window. But when it become non re-sizable this icon disappears. Can anybody suggest is there any way to display icon on the top left of a non resizable JDialoge?

Thanks in  advance.

What platform/window manager?

The only control you get over the JDialog icon is with the setIcon method.  This is probably preferable to relying on the parent component icon if you want a specific icon for your dialog.

Whether the dialog is resizable is irrelevant to Java when setting the frame's icon.  It is entirely possible, however, that your platform's window manager does things differently if the native window is not resizable; if that's the case, you'd have to reconfigure your window manager.

I have a non-resizable dialog for which the icon appears just fine under win32 (I've used setIcon).  The default window manager on RedHat 6.2 GNU/Linux, however, shows no icon for *any* window (the icon only shows up when the window is iconified).
