> There is no API for the "alwaysOnTop" AWT property for the print dialogs.
> I actually don't think it can be implemented for the windows native print controls.
> There is an internal way to make an AWT window owner for the Swing print dialog
> but nothing public and it doesn't help here as the owner is not an AWT window.
>> - Probably the name should contain «owner» instead of «parent»?, But since this is not a public API I guess it is not an issue.
> I suppose that is more correct. Something to address if it ever makes its way into API or docs.
>>> This has an FX bug + webrev :
>>> https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8088395 <https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8088395>
>>> http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~prr/8088395/index.html <http://cr.openjdk.java.net/%7Eprr/8088395/index.html>
>>> and also a JDK-side fix and webrev :-
>>> https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8176530 <https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8176530>
>>> http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~prr/8176350/ <http://cr.openjdk.java.net/%7Eprr/8176350/>
>>> The problem is FX modal dialogs are ignoring the Window parameter.
>>> We can fix the problem with disabling the modal parent on the FX side
>>> and that is why most files in FX are updated.
>>> But it does not fix the "on top" issue which requires the JDK fixes and
>>> to pass in the DialogOnTop private attribute.
>>> The JDK code is there solely for FX and won't have any visibility
>>> unless FX passes in the private attribute.
>>> On Linux it uses the standard AWT "always on top" modality
>>> On windows it uses the HWND for the FX window and windows native modality
>>> On Mac you won't see anything since Mac does this automatically
