Re: Question about modal dialog in gtk application

You can use gtk_widget_show to bring up your dialog, and then use
gtk_set_transient_for to mark it "modal to only one window", to get
behavior similar to firefox.

In my gtk application, I can create 2 windows.
But when I open a dialog in one of my window using gtk_dialog_run(),
why the other window is frozen?

Because this is the intended behavior of gtk_dialog_run():

How can I code it so that one modal dialog do not freeze the other window?

I don't know how to make a modal dialog that does not freeze the
other windows but if you want a non-modal dialog you can use
gtk_widget_show() instead of gtk_dialog_run().

But how can Firefox on linux implements that?
If I have a popup alert in 1 Firefox window, it does not freeze the
other Firefox window and I can scroll up and down in the other window.
