    if you look at the sample screenshot i attached, you will see one of your demo pages for the radbusyindicator. there is a dialog i popped up from the calendar. in this condition if i press the Load Appointments button on the calendar, it will display the busy indicator but it will be behind the dialog i popped up. is there anyway to make the busy indicator show on top of the popup dialog. we have run into this issue before where child windows (i assume busy indicator is a child window) never show on top of popups and I think this is a limitation of silverlight, but just wanted to confirm?

    Hi Kirk Quinbar,

    Thank you for contacting us and sorry for delaying our response.

    Actually, RadBusyIndicator is neither a ChildWindow, nor it contains any popup element in its template. It just displays its busy indication element above its contents (i.e. the controls placed inside it). As a workaround for showing it above RadWindows, you may try placing it inside a Popup element, just like:

    <Popup IsHitTestVisible="False" IsOpen="{Binding IsBusy, ElementName=busyIndicator}" Width="400" Height="400" >
        <telerik:RadBusyIndicator x:Name="busyIndicator" IsBusy="True" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" >

    In this way, by setting the indicator's IsBusy property, you open the Popup in the same time (and should obscure window).

    Hope this works in your use cases. Let us know in case you need further assistance.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
