Hey Telerik,

The ZIndex of the Special Slots is set to 1 hard coded instead of using the Canvas.ZIndex property of the style of the special slot. This way it's hard to do the correct layering of the slots (in the case there are multiple types). I resolved the issue by one way binding and letting it reevaluate ontargetupdated. The binding result always returns the correct ZIndex property of the type of slot. Just a small bug, however due to the recycling of slots it has some perfomance penalties.

Cheers,
Nico

Hi Nico,

Special slots were not intended to overlap. I am not sure we are going to fix this issue as special slots are actually laid in the same panel as highlight slots that show mouse overs and drop shadows and messing with it may lead to unintended results. However I would agree that it would be nice if developers could specify ZIndices for the special slots. Perhaps we will see to it in the future.
