    Hi,

    I'm working on a WPF application. I have a rad docking that contains radpane groups with unpinned docked radpanes. When these fly out and a button is pressed on them, I want to display a sort of overlay like rectangle. My rectangle covers everything in the MainWindow except the radpane that is activated which seems to always show up over my rectangle. Nothing can be clicked on the Mainwindow except that active radpane but I need everything to be under the rectangle without exception AND I need the active radpane to stay visible. Is there a way to have my rectangle be the absolute topmost thing over the unpinned radpane? I've attempted using the ZIndex of the rectangle and putting it on the highest level of the xaml. It works for all the controls of my app except, like I mentionned, the currently active radpane. 

    Cheers!

    Alternatively, if there's any way to do a ShowDialog() on a Window that doesn't hide the unpinned RadPanes this would help me immensely!

    Hi Andre,

    The observed by you behavior of the unpinned RadPane is an expected one in the current implementation of RadDocking.

    When a pane is unpinned, it is placed in a Popup control. In WPF all Popups are shown at the top pf the application above all windows. Because of that the pane is placed and visualized on top of the rectangle. Unfortunately, currently we could not suggest you any proper solution to reorder the positions - this is a Framework behavior.

    We hope the provided information will help you. Please, do not hesitate to contact us if you have any additional questions or concerns regarding Telerik controls.
