Place grids higher than other UI element (z-index)

Place grid above all UI elements (z-index). Many of my prototypes use large dynamic panels (filled), and so I can view the grid. It might not hurt to also allow the user to define the color of the grid lines or at least default to a color not commonly used in prototypes, e.g., not white.

I suppose you are using data grid?


If you select the data grid and go to Properties panel, there you can set the data grid to 'Always on top' and change the row color to two alternating colors.

No sorry. I should have been more specific. I'm referring to the grid in menu > View > Grid. I should also correct my original post, which should have read, "Many of my prototypes use large dynamic panels (filled), and so I CANNOT view the grid, as it is obscured by the panel." Thanks.

Light gray is the current default color of the grid. There's no way to change its color, but I will let our product manager know about your request.


Unfortunately, you cannot move the grid above the UI elements since it is designed to help align your widgets. What you can do is use ruler. The guides can go above your widgets.
