    I am having a huge issue with this control.

    When I display the htmlplaceholder control, all of the content is displayed fine. However, when I go to click on another part of the application, which displays a modal dialog box, that dialog is displayed behind the htmlplaceholder control.

    Please tell me why this is happening and if there is a way to fix?

    Hello Frank Corrado,

    Unfortunately this is not fixable. The html placeholder displays its content above the whole SL application.

    The only (partial) workaround is to hide the html placeholder (using the Visibility property) when the modal window is displayed and to display it back again when the window is closed.

    I am also facing the same issue with the latest version of telerik and silverlight(4). Is there any workaround, other then setting the visibility, which is not possible as the model window does not span the entire htmlplaceholder. Any workaround would be welcomed as this is required at various places. And any ideas whether silverlight 5 would be doing away with this limitation?

    Hello Todd Millett,

    Basically the RadHtmlPlaceholder renders all external pages inside an IFrame placed above the Silverlight plug-in. Unfortunately we are not aware of any workarounds to this issue.

    Using the Visibility property of the control is the only way to display any other Silverlight elements above it.

    All the best,
