    Hi, I hope you can help us.

    We have a silverlight map, and we're using a rad window. When we open the rad window, it is behind the silverlight element. 
    I tried playing with the z-index, but that does not work with silverlight. Setting it to windowless is out of the question because it disables several features. Is there any other way to fix this?

    Please help.

    Hello John,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I tried your scenario and it seems RadWindow shows above the RadMap. It works ok.  you could give us some more details on that, it would be very helpful. Sending us a sample project or screenshot will be really helpful.

    Attached you can find a screenshot from my demo. 

    I will be glad to assist you further.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hello John,

    Thank you for getting back to us.

    I looked the screenshot you attached and it seemed to me that this silverlight map control you use is not a RadMap. Please, correct me if I am wrong. 
    It looks like this map control stays above the whole silverlight application but I cannot say if this is the actual behavior with sure.
    If this is not RadMap, you could try our RadMap control. It works without any problems with our RadWindow (as you see in my attached screenshot) and we works with Bings maps, too. You can see a RadMap examples here.

    Please, tell me if this information helps you. I will be glad to assist you further.
     

    Best wishes,

    Well, yes this is not a RadMap, its created using mapdotnet
    this is the code used to implement it in the page:
     <asp:Silverlight runat="server" ID="silverLightMap" Visible="true" Source="path/SilverLight.xap"
                        Height="400" Width="100%">
                    </asp:Silverlight>

    and it sits on top of everything. A button can be pressed on the left side of the page, which opens a radwindow, but it goes behind the silverlight object. Is there a way to make it go in front?

    thanks

    Hello John,

    Thank you for getting back to me.

    This map stays above the RadWindow because it stays above whole silverlight plugin. We cannot show up the RadWindow outside of the silverlight plugin. 

    Please, let me know if you need a further assistant.
