How to get option dialog back to top

Hi, my SWING applications extensively use JOptionPane dialogs.
If I obscure a lengthy operation by other applications or if I iconise it, then
after some time it might ask a question by means of a dialog.
Now, whenever I therefore take the application back to front, it appears
that the dialog hides BEHIND the main frame and can only be
put to front (mandatory since it concerns modal dialogs) by
tabbing (Alt+Tab) through the applications.
What did I forget when writing the dialog calling code?

This is an MSWindows problem; on LINUX I always use separate desktops.
;JOOP!

Pass your frame as the owner of the dialog

eg

JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(frame, "message");

Yes guys, I always did, but now I found that I forgot to add that reference in one place;
how stupid.

Naeemg, you don't have to support objects: I know him.

Well, another good reason to review al my code.

Greetings!
