Those are some good ideas. In an effort to just write something quickly I
1) keep track of context object z-index
2) set z-index of this object to some absurd big z-index value
3) on lost focus (or when the object should resume the "not" expanded state)
return z-index to original size
This seems to be working fine..
I was fishing for if anyone else had ran into similar implementation
problems. You know its fantastic to finally be able to write all of this
