Home Forums CSS confused about ‘relative’ and ‘absolute’ position ! Re: confused about ‘relative’ and ‘absolute’ position !


@TheDoc In the cases I’ve run across, when you need to _interact_ with those elements, a z-index is always required. I agree, however, that when your absolutely positioned elements are solely for design purposes, _thinking_ about z-index isn’t necessary.

Regardless, there _will_ be instances when @bhaktanishant needs to use z-index, and so it will be important to know what z-index is, its function, and to what situation it could apply, such as interacting with AP page elements.
