Dialog windows should be set transient for the main application window they were spawned from.
This allows window managers to e.g. keep the dialog on top of the main window, or center the dialog over the main window. [ ctor@Gtk.Dialog.new_with_buttons] and other convenience functions in GTK will sometimes call set_transient_for on your behalf.
Passing null for
parent unsets the current transient window.
On Windows, this function puts the child window on top of the parent, much as the window manager would have done on X.
