Trouble with jQuery Dialog and Datepicker plugins

Old Answer

z-index (note the hyphen!) is the property that matters. Make sure you set it greater than the dialogue, and make sure you set it on the correct element. Here’s how we do it:

 z-index: 1000; /* must be > than popup editor (950) */

In the CSS file for the date picker, find the .ui-datepicker item and change it:

.ui-datepicker { width: 17em; padding: .2em .2em 0; z-index: 9999 !important; }

Using z-index: 9999 !important; worked in Firefox 3.5.9 (Kubuntu).
