Hi, Phil.
I have only two questions:
 - Does it mean that we do not support "ontop" property via public API in idk?
 - Probably the name should contain «owner» instead of «parent»?, But since this is not a public API I guess it is not an issue.

> This has an FX bug + webrev :

> The problem is FX modal dialogs are ignoring the Window parameter.
> We can fix the problem with disabling the modal parent on the FX side
> and that is why most files in FX are updated.
> But it does not fix the "on top" issue which requires the JDK fixes and
> to pass in the DialogOnTop private attribute.
> The JDK code is there solely for FX and won't have any visibility
> unless FX passes in the private attribute.
> On Linux it uses the standard AWT "always on top" modality
> On windows it uses the HWND for the FX window and windows native modality
> On Mac you won't see anything since Mac does this automatically
