I have a dialog that extends JDialog, in an applet in a browser.
It`s working fine in IE 5. I`ve just tried it in
Netscape 4.7 (with JRE 1.3.1) and am getting this stack traceback often:
java.lang.IllegalStateException: Can`t dispose InputContext while it`s active
at (Unknown Source)
at java.awt.Window$1$ Source)
at java.awt.Window.dispose(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.Dialog.disposeImpl(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.Dialog.dispose(Unknown Source)
The last line is when my dialog overrides Dialog.dispose() and calls
after that it makes a call to another applet by calling AppletContext.showDocument(url);

Does anybody understand what this message about InputContext is saying?
plz let me know ASAP..
