    I got an activex control that display images, and my page divided by frames that their size can be changed by RadSplitter when I'm dragging the splitter over the activex control I'm lossing the cursor, also if I'm open popup RadWindow over activex control I cant move the popup window there is some king conflict with rad control with my activex. The Activex control actualy very simple and standart its only display images like tiff, jpeg etc.

    Any ideas how can I get it work.

    Hello Dimitry,

    Set the Overlay property of RadWindowManager or RadWindow to True and see whether it helps.

    Also go through the following link, which might help you.
    RadWindow overlayed by flash in firefox

    Note that ActiveX and Flash plugins are windowed objects and they have always greater z-index than all HTML elements in the page.

    All the best,

    Overlay and z-index fix only flash object problem,
    but its not fix activex problem when I'm moving radwindow over activex still its flickering.
    I even tested it on a blank activex form and still not working.

    Hello Dimitry,

    Please try setting the wmode property of the windowed object to transparent or opaque. I also advise that you upgrade to the latest version of the RadControls and see if this helps. I also see that in the net a lot of people are complaining that activeX controls do not take these properties correctly and in that case there is nothing we can do. An example is available here. Please try moving another HTML object above the activeX control. If it does exhibit the same behavior then this is a browser issue we cannot control it.
