 I am experiencing an issue with the KendoWindow in that I have a child Window that is falling behind the parent, making it not visible on screen unless the parent is moved. I need the child to come to the very front, as it is going to be a modal that requires some user action to remove itself at completion. I have a code block that represents a issue similar to what I am experiencing. The parent KendoWindow has a button which attempts to bring the child Window to the front, but that does not occur. 

What would be required to have the expected behavior occur?


<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Kendo UI Snippet</title>
    <script src=""></script>
<div id="dialog"><button id="btn" type="button" >Click</button></div>
<div id="another">hello</div>
  var another = $("#another").data("kendoWindow");
   var dialog = $("#dialog").data("kendoWindow");
  $("#btn").mousedown(function() {

Hi Joshua,

I would suggest using the click event handler instead, as focusing Windows brings them to the front. Here is an example illustrating a behavior similar to the one you described.
