Upgrading to GWT 2.0 broke the GWT PopupPanel displaying over a GXT form. Right now when the popup displays, the text of FormPanel objects is visible on top of the popup window. Also if you click the TextField super-imposed over the popup it moves into focus.

I'm assuming GXT will release a fix for this eventually, anyone have a solution in the meantime? I've tried putting pictures, images, and panels filled with background color but either way the text form the forms displays as an overlay over images, panels, etc.

to be honest i do not have much idea about 2.0 and GXT,

If I was you, I would also try a css solution:z-index

just a suggestion....

Hey Salvin,

That worked! My guess is the GWT update lowered the z-index value of the PopupPanel such that background elements were able to be placed on top. I just created a new style in my css file was set with a high z-index value, then called popup.setStyle(...).

Thanks!

Actually with a bit of testing I discovered the value has to be "z-index: 2" or higher. Though, given that its a popup a much higher value should work since you always want it on top of everything.

Another note: If you had Flash SWF in the background you need to set the property "wmode = transparency". For whatever reason, this was not needed previously, but in 2.0 is needed else Flash in the background will appear above any PopupPanel objects.

cool!

I am glad i could be of service..

As a side note, the wmode= transparent basically removes the background of the flash file and makes it transparent. this is what i did to make that watch in my site,
take care when using flash within components such as splitter panels....
