[OpenMap Users] OM Dialogs Issue

Not sure this is a general problem but when the LayersPanel toolbar button
launches the layers dialog it gets the parent frame from the bean context
but when using, e .g., BasicMapPanel there is no frame in the bean context
which causes at least the LayersPanel dialog to be without a parent. If
there are other dialogs created in a simmilar way they will also be created
without a parent.

So why is the bean context used for finding the parent frame?

Something like


Frame frameForActionEvent(ActionEvent e) {
    if (e.getSource() instanceof Component) {
        Component c = (Component)e.getSource();
        while(c != null) {
            if (c instanceof Frame) {
                return (Frame)c;
            c = (c instanceof JPopupMenu) ? ((JPopupMenu)c).getInvoker() :
    return null;

public void showMyDialog(ActionEvent e) {
    Window dialogOwner = frameForActionEvent(e);
    JDialog dialog = new MyDialog(dialogOwner, true);

should do the trick.

The workaround is to just put the parent frame into the bean context by
