I have a Google MAPS application where we are showing existing appointments on a map & the location of a NEW customer so we can see if we want to schedule for that day.

See attached Image.

The NEW customer is the GREEN marker. I want the GREEN marker to appear ON TOP OF all the others when there is a conflict. How can that be done?

If you're referring to the Z-Index, then hopefully this article will provide the info you're looking for.

I thought version 3 was now live. Can't you just set zindex to some high value?

I tried that, it didn't work.

Thanks

This looks like what you've tried, and explains it a bit. Seems like you have to use a REALLY high number.
