Go to the RadWindow Restriction Zone demo.

When the demo has loaded, maximize one of the windows. Click on the RadWindow menu option. You should see the menu drop behind the maximized window at least it does here in both IE8 and Chrome. 

Now, click on one of the options on the left side of the page, I picked cssplay.co.uk, but it doesn't actually matter which you pick. You'll see the window open up through the titlebar of the maximized window but you won't be able to access it without at least restoring with maximized window. I would have at least expected the newly opened window to appear on top.

Hello Stuart,

The behavior that is shown in the demo is the expected one, because the maximized RadWindow is supposed to has the biggest z-index on the page. You can control this behavior, however, by setting the ShowOnTopWhenMaximized="false" property of the control. This setting causes the RadWindow's z-index to stay unchanged when the window is maximized. In addition, you can explicitly set z-index to RadCorols in order to cover some specific scenarios. This page contains the default z-indexes of some RadControls.

All the best,

Fiko.

Thanks for that. I accept you answer, I just think that, for the purposes of the demo, the example is counter-intuitive. Perhaps you should consider setting ShowOnTopWhenMaximized="false" in the demo page. Either that or modify the demo to include a checkbox that allows the user to see the impact of that option on the control.

Just my 2d worth.

Hello Stuart,

Thank you for the suggestion - you have a point and we updated the demo (the changed code will be available in the new BETA that will be released in the next couple of days).
