Getting jQuery UI Dialog z-index properties
Posted on 2011-10-30
I am creating a web application that opens a number of jQuery UI dialog windows containing all kinds of content. I am looking for a way to be able to obtain the current z-index of each dialog window so that I can store it in an array - and return the user to the exact same z-index layout of the windows at another time. This works for me with x and y properties, and also width and height, but I can't seem to get z-index to work.
I am using the following code inside a function/loop to try and obtain the z-index of the windows when a 'save' button is clicked - as I said, this DOES return a value, but it doesn't seem to return the current z-index order -
var sz = document.getElementById('resizable' + x).style.zIndex;
Any help from anyone gladly appreciated.
