Hi Petr,

The checkBlocking() should actually bring the blocker window to top. In 
your case the blocker is the native print dialog. I'd suggest to look at 
how the dialog is created in the printing code in JDK, and make sure 
they show the dialog modally (using the native modality support on OS 
X). In this case the OS will not allow one to Alt-Tab out of the print 
dialog to another window of the same app until the dialog is closed.

Alternatively, if using the native modality is not an option, then we 
have to somehow get a reference to the native NSWindow/NSPanel instance 
associated with the native print dialog, and bring it to top in the 
checkBlocking() method.

best regards,
