    I have a rad Window for Ajax (formerly Prometheus) displaying onload of a pag.  The page calling the window has a menu at 100% width across the page.   I am encountering an issue where the menu does not display behind the window.  It is almost as if the z-index of the menu is less than the window and the menu overlaps the window.

    If this a flaw with the control of am I doing something wrong.

    Hi Adam,

    In the latest release of RadControls for ASP.Net AJAX we have changed the z-index of some controls as follows:

    RadToolTip - 8000
    RadMenu - 7000
    RadCombo - 6000
    RadDatePicker - 5000
    RadColorPicker - 4000
    RadWindow - 3000
    RadSplitter - 2000
    RadDock - 1000

    In different scenarios, you may need to change these values in order to ensure that one specific control will be shown above the other - for example RadWindow over RadMenu. To make this process easier, from RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX Q1 2008, you can set the value of the z-index property of every control by using the common style property.

    style="z-index: 1000"

    I hope this helps.

    Best regards,
    the Telerik team

    I have the same problem. rad Menu displays on top of the rad Window. The attribute 'style' is not one of any control's properties. so this syntax is actually not vaild (at least from Visual Studio's point of view).

    <Telerik:RadWindow ID="ProfileWindow" runat="server" Modal="true" style="z-index: 1000" />

    Could you please show me how to implement this?

    Hi Ashraf,

    I see that George missed an important part of the information - we apologize for that.

    Style="z-index:<some value>" can be set to the RadWindowManager only, not to the RadWindow control itself. This is because the z-index of the different RadWindows is dynamically changed - even if you have a RadWindow with z-index 100, it will be displayed over other RadWindows with higher z-index value, if active.

    I know this thread is a couple of months old but I just wanted to add my experience here for those searching for a solution. I actually just changed the menu z-index to 2500 and that seems to have fixed it.
