I've got a gallery of items. 


When dragged, the box's z-index appears to be higher than elements created before, but lower than ones created after.  


I want the z-index (for the dragged item) to be higher than all other items, not just the ones created before in the DOM.  


ie box 1 should move on top of boxes 2 - 5, not under them.


I've tried ZIndexBoost. 


Edit: I've also tried applying style.zIndex="" on click, but it's not working.

Hi Andy


Thanks a lot for the demo. VERY helpful.

z-index only works on element that have a css position applied.

just add position:relative to your .g and you should be good to go
