The most appropriate window (of the windows associated with the document) to use as the parent window of a document-modal sheet.


@property(readonly, strong) NSWindow *windowForSheet;


The value of this property may be nil, in which case the sender should present an app-modal panel. The NSDocument implementation of this property sets the value to the window of the first window controller, or [NSApp mainWindow] if there are no window controllers or if the first window controller has no window.
