    public final class DialogOwner
    extends Object
    implements PrintRequestAttribute
    An attribute class used to support requesting a print or page setup dialog be kept displayed on top of all windows or some specific window.

    Constructed without any arguments it will request that a print or page setup dialog be configured as if the application directly was to specify java.awt.Window.setAlwaysOnTop(true), subject to permission checks.

    Constructed with a Window parameter, it requests that the dialog be owned by the specified window.
