    Has anyone had any success with displaying a RadToolTip on the ModalPopupExtender of the AjaxControlToolkit?

    In IE, it works as expected, but in Firefox the RadToolTip consistently displays undernead the modal popup.

    I have tried to set the z-index on the RadToolTip explicitly to be higher than the modalpopup's script, but this doesn't do the job.

    Hello Daniel,

    I tried to reproduce the problem locally, but everything seems to work as expected (see attached screenshot). Can you please open a support ticket and send us a small sample project where we can observe the problem? We will check it and do our best to help.

    Best wishes,

    I am using the RadToolTip from 2012.1 and the behavior is the same as the one described by Daniel. And with all due respect, your sample picture is sort of cheating. Your tool tip is outside the popup. Can you show a picture where the tool tip is in top of the ajax modal popup? I am attaching a picture from my application and you can see the tooltip text behind the popup.

    Thank you

    Hi guys,

    The AjaxControlToolkit ModalPopupExtender has a very high z-index value - 100 001, so in order to show a tooltip above it you would need to make its z-index even higher (it defaults to 8000). Details on the default values and a way to change it are availalble here: http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/controlling-absolute-positioning-with-zindex.html. Here is a CSS alternative that will change the RadToolTip's z-index. You can find a similar rule that will reduce the modal popup extender z-index if you want
        z-index: 110000 !important;

    If neither helps I would advise sending us some code that can show the problem so we can actually investigate it.
