    I have a Kendo Grid appearing in a modal successfully.

    The filtering menus do not appear when clicking on the 3 dots in the column header.

    It seems to be a layering issue. If I force change the z-index in dev tools the dropdown menu appears but then the filtering tools have issues. Has anyone else solved this problem?

    I partially fixed this issue by adding the css rule:

    .k-animation-container {
      z-index: 100002


    but the input text boxes do not work. They do get focus, but cannot be typed into. They appear disabled.

    This is indeed caused by the stack over. The reason is that the Popup used for the Menu and its DropDownst inside has a default z-index of 100:

    After I set the z-index to the higher than the Dialog, it was showing as expected and the inputs were editable:

    I hope this is helpful.
