    Hi,

    I am trying to set one of my elements to appear on top of radwindows but I cant get it to work.

    Can you please tell me how I can do this? I have menus on screen and they fall behind the Radwindows.

    Thanks,

    Hi Amir,

    Would you tell us more about your scenario, are the menus you're trying to open part of the Telerik assembly, e.g. RadMenu? Do you position your menus inside the radwindow or not?

    The menus we are using are not part of Telerik Silverlight Components. Menus are like a button that you can click on and it will open a stack with other buttons like a submenu. These menu button are always visible in our design and the problem is Radwindows appear on top of them. For example if one maximises a radwindow it will cover the menu buttons. Is there a way that I could make menu buttons be on top of everything else including Radwindows?

    Hello Amir,

    Unfortunately, the manual setting of ZIndex is a problem introduced by the latest plug-in version of Silverlight. We have reported this issue to Microsoft and we hope that they will consider changing this behavior, because it's quite inconvinient not to use this property. That is why, RadWindow currently doesn't support the TopMost functionality. Moreover, the ZIndex is controlled by the framework, and the only way to have a menu over our RadWindow control is to open the menu after you have opened the RadWindow control. In this way the ZIndex of the most recent control will have the highest ZIndex order.

    Hello Hristo,

    Im just about to purchase your Silverlight control suite and Im facing the same challange as Amir here:
    Are there still no way to position any element (grid or any other container) in front of your RadWindows? The thing is that Im building a desktop like environment and I want my "start menu" to always be on top of any window (non modal) I open. You see?
    Is this possible? Or can you think of any way to achieve this - with or without your Telerik components?

    Thank you!

    FYI:
    Well I found a solution. I wrapped the UI elements I wanted to always stay on top of everyting inside Popup controls, and each time a window was opened I switched the IsOpen property to false and true again. This way my elements inside of these Popup controls will always stay on top of all opened windows.
    I cant think of another way to do this - but it works...
    The Popup control as we know ignores zindex - so I guess this is a SL framwork issue.

    Should I call this a solution or a workaround? :-)

    Hi Øivind,

    I'm trying to accomplish the same "startmenu"-functionality.

    Could tell how exactly you solve the problem using the popup controls?
    A code example would be great.

    thx

    Never mind I found it myself.
    I was confused beacuse I could not find the PopUp-Control.

    For everybody with the same problem: import this namespace

    then the control is available using <pop:Popup x:Name="pop_StartMenu">
