I run JavaHelp - Object demo. I call popup window. A one appears and part of it is
displayed over main window. It is OK. If I click on a popup window, the
part, that was over main window, is hidden under the one and remain
there. I can click on a popup, but I have never seen whole.

To run the object demo:

	1. cd /net/mizu.eng/usr/re/jh1.1.2/binary/jh1.1.2/demos/bin
	2. sh object
	3. Click on one of the popup demos

This will use the jdk in your path. Note this is regression on JDK1.4. It worked previously on JDK1.3 and JDK1.2.2.

EVALUATION I've attached a test case showing this behavior. Click on the show button, then click in the first text field, the popup imediately goes behind the main window. I was only able to reproduce this on Solaris. Windows (NT) and Linux (GNOME) don't exhibit this behavior. scott.violet@eng 2001-05-29 This behavior is window manager-dependent. You should be able to avoid this problem by setting a window manager property which makes an owned window always appear on top of its owner. The fix for this requires a change to the focus specification, and thus must be approved by the CCC. david.mendenhall@east 2001-05-30 Sounds like 4454106 is a duplicate. eric.hawkes@eng 2001-07-30 Committing to hopper, tiger. ###@###.### 2001-10-15 Name: dmR10075 Date: 05/17/2002 Not reproducible with Hopper b11 - was fixed along with 4546712 ###@###.### 2002-05-17 ======================================================================
