hi!

I have an applet and when I run it on web site floating JFrame pop up. Now, if I click outside of the JFrame, I guess the JFrame goes behind web browser frame. Do do I fix that?
****************************
  public void init() {

    wizardFrame = new JFrame("Configured");
    container = wizardFrame.getContentPane();

Hi dkim18,

>> I guess the JFrame goes behind web browser frame.
Only if you click on another window covering your Frame.

You can either

  * make the JFrame the same size as the screen :
    Dimension screen_size = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getScreenSize();
    wizardFrame.setBounds(0,0,screen_size.width,screen_size.height);

  * or use a swing timer in order to periodically put your JFrame on the top :

         Timer tm=new Timer(1000, // every 1000 ms
             new ActionListener() {
                  public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent ev)
                  { wizardFrame.toFront(); }
             }
         );

Use a JDialog and make your applet the dialog owner.

Frame owner = (Frame) SwingUtilities.getAncestorOfClass(Frame.class, applet);
JDialog dialog = new JDialog(owner);

 Webstorm,

This didn't work
------------------------

object,

Frame owner = (Frame) SwingUtilities.getAncestorOfClass(Frame.class, applet);
JDialog dialog = new JDialog(owner);

what 'applet' does represent?

Since this is an applet, how come there is an object?
All are worked in init().

not sure what u mean, JApplet is a class, and your applet is an instance of that class.
