OSX, Reaper: ModalDialog behind plugin Window


#1

Hi together,
the modal dialog shows up behind the plugin window since i updated to the latest tip. I have this issue on my OSX 10.6.8 system using the latest Reaper Host (4.33). VST 32/64 and AU 32/64 plugins are affected. It works with Ableton Live and AU Lab.

I use following code to open the dialog:

This worked with a few months older JUCE tip. Did i miss anything? Any help would be great.

Using modal dialogs in plugins is Very Dangerous - don’t do it!!

Reaper might use always-on-top windows, in which case you may need to setAlwaysOnTop to force your window to the front.
