    [OPEN] [#1688] Window covers up the Desktop task bar

    I am using your desktop example code. Open a grid window, drag it to the bottom, the grid window can then cover up the desktop taskbar. Our end-user feels it is difficult to find menu on the taskbar if it is covered. Is there a way to make the taskbar always show on top or somehow not let the grid win going outside of the desktop?
    Thanks! -susan

    Hello, Susan!

    Just force the taskbar's z-index CSS style and it should work as you need.

    Unfortunately it seems the AlwaysOnTop and AlwaysOnTopIndex server-side settings are broken. We have logged this issue under #1688 in GitHub and will post a follow-up here as soon as the issue is addressed.

    For now, just give a high value of z-index for the component and it should work fine. Example that worked in the scenario you described was:

    StyleSpec="z-index: 99999"
    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the feedback! We will keep the thread tagged as 'open' so we keep track of the issue with the AlwaysOnTop setting.
