    I have a page that has several RadDockableObjects that are dynamically generated.  Each RadDockableObject has a RadToolbar object on it.  I have a RadTooltipManager on the page to generate the tooltips for the ToolbarButtons.  Everything is fine when the page initially loads.  However, after one or more of the RadDockableObjects are refreshed using AJAX, they appear above the tooltip.

    I have tried setting this z-order of each the RadDockableObjects to -250 after each AJAX postback, but that doesn't seem to help.  Since I am using a RadToolbarManager, I'm not sure how to set the z-order for the tooltips.  I also tried updating the css file for the tooltip skin, but for some reason none of my changes seemed to take affect (I set the EnableEmbeddedSkins=false and explicitly referenced the stylesheet per an article here). 

    Any other suggestions out there to get the tooltips to stay on top?

    Because of the nature of the application, it isn't possible to post the complete project, but I will post whatever snippets might help to troubleshoot this problem as needed.

    Anyone have any ideas on how to keep the tooltips generated by a ToolTipManager "on top"?  I'm willing to even add some Javascript in the Response scripts to force the tooltips to the top after every AJAX postback if that is what it will take.

    Hi daviddam,
    I believe the problem is not caused by the ajax request you make, but by the fact that you have moved the RadDockableObject. If this is the case - I prepared a simple project to demonstrate how you can get the desired behavior - please find it attached.

    In case my assumption is not correct, please prepare and send us a simple running project, demonstrating the problem.

    Best wishes,
