I am trying to make a Popup like MSN (unfortunate requirement from Client :))
I am extending JDialog class and used this.setUndecorated(true); to remove all the title bars ect from it.
Then I could paint an Image on it.

Now the problem which i am facing is to keep the window on top of every control.
I have used
this.toFront(); method to keep it on top of the stack but it doesnot stay on top as soon as I click some application it goes back.. So what I did is in Paint method, i called this.toFront();

but still it doesnot behave like MSN

Is there anyway I  can keep it on the Top as MSN popup, (I cannot make it a Model)

Any one knows about some native calls for this purpose?
Thanx for suggestions
