        position:absolute;
        background-color:black;
        opacity:0.1;

      function setzIndex(index){
        $("#overlay").css("z-index", index);
      }
      $(document).ready(function() {
        // Create the Editor from a textarea HTML element with the default set of tools.
        $("#editor").kendoEditor();
      });
    </script>
