Qt 5 modal Dialogs are opened behind "stay always on top" window on Mac

  • I designed an application with Qt 5 on MAC OS. When application main window (QMainWindow) is set to be always on top(Qt::WindowStaysOnTopHint), modal dialogs are opened behind the main window (the reason is that the flag Qt::WindowStaysOnTopHint doesn't work for modal dialogs in Mac)
    Are there any ideas how implement a mechanism to open modal dialogs ahead of "stay Always On Top" QMainWindow or how to set qt modal dialog to be always top window on Mac?

    Which version of Qt are you using ?

    IIRC, that bug has been solved but it might be for 5.3

  • I use qt 5.2.1 and the issue exists on this version
