    My application currently uses a Silverlight Popup control stretched across the entire plugin area to prevent interaction with any controls beneath it during specific operations. I need to dynamically display RadWindow's both above and below this Popup - which is where I'm running into issues as using the Popup IsOpen property in conjunction with RadWindows BringToFront method doesn't always result in the proper zorder.

    Is there an existing modal Telerik Popup control with BringToFront functionalilty that will place nicely with the RadWindow BringToFront method?

    One solution maybe to customize a RadWindow with a style that would essentially make the window invisible while preserving its modal background, but this seems as though it may be overkill. Thoughts/suggestions?

    Hello Greg,

    Unfortunately the Z-order of the RadWindows is only for the RadWindows and they cannot be mixed with other popups (or at least this cannot be controlled easily). The RadWindow currently brings to the front by closing and opening its popup, but this is because of a bug in Silverlight and might be changed.

    As you correctly noticed you could achieve this by changing the control template of the RadWindow and showing a modal window.
