public static enum class: Dialog.ModalityType [javadoc | source]
java.lang.Enum
   java.awt.Dialog$ModalityType
Modal dialogs block all input to some top-level windows. Whether a particular window is blocked depends on dialog's type of modality; this is called the "scope of blocking". The ModalityType enum specifies modal types and their associated scopes.
Field Summary
public static  ModalityType MODELESS    MODELESS dialog doesn't block any top-level windows. 
public static  ModalityType DOCUMENT_MODAL    A DOCUMENT_MODAL dialog blocks input to all top-level windows from the same document except those from its own child hierarchy. A document is a top-level window without an owner. It may contain child windows that, together with the top-level window are treated as a single solid document. Since every top-level window must belong to some document, its root can be found as the top-nearest window without an owner. 
public static  ModalityType APPLICATION_MODAL    An APPLICATION_MODAL dialog blocks all top-level windows from the same Java application except those from its own child hierarchy. If there are several applets launched in a browser, they can be treated either as separate applications or a single one. This behavior is implementation-dependent. 
public static  ModalityType TOOLKIT_MODAL    A TOOLKIT_MODAL dialog blocks all top-level windows run from the same toolkit except those from its own child hierarchy. If there are several applets launched in a browser, all of them run with the same toolkit; thus, a toolkit-modal dialog displayed by an applet may affect other applets and all windows of the browser instance which embeds the Java runtime environment for this toolkit. Special AWTPermission "toolkitModality" must be granted to use toolkit-modal dialogs. If a TOOLKIT_MODAL dialog is being created and this permission is not granted, a SecurityException will be thrown, and no dialog will be created. If a modality type is being changed to TOOLKIT_MODAL and this permission is not granted, a SecurityException will be thrown, and the modality type will be left unchanged.
