show() window not working on page with layout

I am using the free version 2.6. I have a page with a layout and a number of windows which can be closed and reopened.

The first time a user opens a window it gets created and a

on the page gets attached. When they close the window I call the hide() method, and use show() if they wish to reopen the window.

Without a layout it all works fine. After adding a layout it only works in IE8. Firefox, Safari and Chrome all give the same result where the modal screen appears, but the window does not reappear.

In one of the other posts I saw mention of having to set z-index = 1000, but don’t know which z-index they were referring to, or where it needs to be changed.

Please provide completed demo. … d_demo.htm
