An absolute positioned div with the highest zorder is not being respected in android. the modal has two input fields and a button.

i've googled it but could find no thorough answers as to why this happens and a solid pattern to solve the problem. So i decided to consult experts.

Any thoughts?

When I google css3 z-index android  I see hundreds of reports of the problem with absolute positioned elements not respecting z-index.  I don't see any resolution to the bug.

You probably need to re-think the design not using absolute positioning, or drop support for android until the bug is fixed in some future release.

Yeah, that's what i was hoping the answer wasn't... but the truth is the truth.  So I'll implement the "use another method" pattern if it's an Android device.

Just wanted to make sure I wasn't overlooking something.  Much appreciated.

Each new release of software creates its own little problems, and each new device gives us a chance to get messed up.  It has been that way since the beginning of the Internet.  Sorry I didn't have a solution for this one.
