BUG: Form Z-Order error

There seems to be a problem when it comes to forms and z-order.


In my app I display a dialog box where user can enter some information. It stays on top of things as it's supposed to do until made to go away, see image 1.


If the user clicks an icon to display a form with the details for an order item, the fields in the form shines through and are not covered by the message box as they are supposed to, see image 2. The form is lower in the list, so the z-order should be lower and the contents of the form ought to be obscured by the dialog. This is highly annoying, and plain wrong!


It behaves the same way when running in the web tool, run directly in the browser, on an iPad or Android phone.

Have you set the screen color to brown? if yes, then probably your dialog box and the details form have not been filled with any color.


Can you check if you set the Fill color of the details form and the dialog box to brown.

Thanks for the suggestions, but...


The dialog box is filled with a colour, that's the first thing I made sure of. Whether the form is filled or not should not matter in this case, since it's the fields of the form that are displayed on top of the dialog and not the background colour of the form itself.
