    Is it possible to force these three options to always come to the front?  I'm encountering an issue when I have multiple RadWindow's open that if one of those Windows calls either of these three options that the Confirm,Alert,Prompt is behind the Window.  Works fine if there is only 1 Window open at a time.

    Hello Kevin,

    The newly opened windows always come to the front. The problem comes when you open a new window just before the Activate method of another RadWindow is called (this happens when a RadWindow is clicked). If you have a button in a RadWindow and you show a confirm when the user mouse down the button, the new window will appear under the old one, because the old one will call its Activate method. You could work this around by opening the new windows after the click event.

    If this doesn't help, please send us a sample project that represents the issue - this would help us investigate what the problem is.

    Try setting the owner of the RadWindow and it should come to the front.

    Silverlight e.g.


    var owner = this.ParentOfType<ContentControl>();
    var dlgParams = new DialogParameters
            Content = e.MessageString,
            Header = "Save Failed",
            Owner = owner

    WPF e.g. 

    var dlgParams = new DialogParameters
        Content = e.MessageString,
        Header = "Status",
        Owner = this

    I am facing the same problem, i tried the way you have shown in your reply but still it does not work for me as i am not able to find the "Owner" property in "DialogParameters" 

    Any help will be highly appreciated.
