I am using Powerbuilder 2019, and I am not able to bring datawindows to front or back when coding a window that has layered datawindows. In earlier versions of Powerbuilder (our previous version was 10.5), right-clicking on a datawindow and choosing "Send to Back" would, well, send that datawindow to the back and allow me to work with the datawindow that was under that one. In Powerbuilder 2019, there is no effect. I cannot find anything in the existing questions that covers this, so maybe there is a setting I am missing somewhere?
I have a similar problem in 2017R3 as well as 2019R2.
The bring to front/send to back are options are disabled. However, making the dw visible does not help.
It seems to have more to do with the object (dw or other object such as button) being on the ancestor
The "Bring to Front" or "Send to Back" feature works perfectly for me in PB2019 build 2170 and PB2019 R2 beta build 2279 - whether the DW Controls are in the Ancestor, in the Descendant or a mixture of both under my W10 O/S. For example ...

Is the window inherited, and is one or more of the datawindows actually on the ancestor?
