    I'm calling a tooltipManager from inside a radDock.

    While the radDock is docked in a dockzone, there's no problem, but when the radDock is floating it overlaps the tooltip.

    I've found similar posts related to radCalendar or radCombobox mentioning zIndex but I can't find zIndex neither on tooltipManager or radDock.

    How can I show the tooltip always on top?

    Hi Mark,

    Yes, you are right, this problem is due to floating RadDock's z-index being bigger than RadToolTip's z-index.
    In order to achieve the desired behavior you must apply a CSS style which will override the default one as shown below:

     #RadToolTipWrapper_   
        {  
           z-index:10000000 !important;  
        } 
     
    You need to use the keyword "!important" in order not to let the default style to override your custom one.

    The ID which is used is the ID of the RadToolTip's wrapper element. If you want to apply the same style to a RadToolTip which is not shown using the RadToolTipManager, the appropriate ID will be:
    "RadToolTipWrapper_[YourToolTipClientID]".


    All the best,
