    Hi,

    I open a RadWindow to display a Radgrid as a modal popup. The Radgrid has a GridDateTimeColumn which displays a calender picker in Insert and Edit modes. The Calender picker does not show up when the grid is placed in the RadWindow popup. It works fine when used in regular .aspx page.
    Could you please help?

    Thanks
    Meera

    Hi Meera,

    Are you using the ContentTemplate of the RadWindow? Have you modified the z-index the RadWindow has? Is your RadWIndow maximized? I am asking this because it is possible that the dropdown shows, but the z-index values cause it to stay behind the RadWIndow in case you are using the ContentTemplate. More information about the default z-index values is available in this help article and it also shows how you can override it so that the combobox has higher z-index than the RadWindow. By default the RadWindow will be below the combo's dropdown, which is why I am asking if you have modified these values. In case you have your RadWIndow maximized you can set its ShowOnTopWhenMaximized property to false, because its default value (true) causes the maximized RadWIndow to increase its z-index value to 100 000.

    Hi Marin,

    Thank you very much for your reposnse.

    I am not using ContentTemplate and the RadWindow is not maximized. I did a search on this topic in the forum and tried different methods suggested including the z-index solution. But it was not helping. When I tested in Chrome the datepicker shows up but RadWindow was transparent. In IE the datepicker problem as mentioned. Ultimately tried setting a skin for RadWindow and removed the Opacity property from RadWindowManager. Also set a background color for the page. This helped and everything worked in IE8 and Chrome
