OS X Cocoa: help is displayed under modal dialogs
|Reported by:||fsenore||Owned by:|
Testing the Cocoa port I discovered that if a modal dialog shows help the help window is displayed under the dialog and there is no way to have it in the foreground. Of course this makes help pages almost useless.
I have added a patch to the html/help sample to reproduce the problem.
Run htmlhelp.app and select the "File/Show modal dialog" menu: it will show a small modal dialog (I have grafted it from another sample so it looks really bad).
Press any button to show an empty help window: the dialog remains in front of the help window.
