Hello, AWT Team.
Please review the fix for the following issue:
(The issue might not be on bugs.sun.com yet)
The fix is available at:
When the Choice popup is created from the APPLICATON_MODAL dialog it is also blocked by that dialog, because we do not set the owner for a frame underlying the popup.
The problem is that a swing popup, which's a delegate of the AWT popup on macosx does not know anything about it's parent, so Swing code cannot find a window to set as an
owner in PopupFactory.Popup.getHeavyWeightPopup. The proposed changes fix this problem.
With best regards. Petr.
