#5765 closed bug (worksforme)

datepicker doesn't inherit z-index from input

line 664 of jquery.ui.datepicker.js


$(input).zIndex() always returns 0, even when and $(input).css('z-index') return something else.

I only tested the minified version.

I can attest to this as well, the z-index of the datepicker is always being set to 1. Is there a workaround for this? I tried using the dialog version, but this is not sufficient since it only sets the z-index to 2, and I need it to be at least 5.

I'm affected by this problem, too. I think users must set z-index with css rules as needed, it's almost useless to set a higher z-index when most input have z-index: auto.

It does seem like this line defeats the purpose of being able to set your own in any of the previous ways .... like: via css class OR using beforeShow to compute and return a z-index.


So I agree with making this change!

Had the same issue, opened jquery.ui.core.js and found this line: if (position == 'absolute' || position == 'relative' || position == 'fixed'). My element position was "static" (by default), so I explicitly changed it to "relative" and $.zIndex() started working properly.

I have the same problem. jsFiddle test:

z-index of input element: 2 expected z-index of datepicker: 3 actual z-index of datepicker: 1

As steelaz mentions, z-index isn't applied unless the element is positioned. Set position: relative to get the z-index to apply.
