Indeed I built my own "popup" featuring some buttons, sprites and labels etc., and it's based on a Node2D. The structure is somewhat complex with different branches and I put that mouse-stop-Panel in place where I can still tap buttons above (I realize I could also use a ControlNode for the input-stopping...).
The popup (and its "activation-button") is just placed somewhere within the sceentree, like:
- some element
- another element
- more elements
- even more elements
- (wanted temporary position)
With the z-index I can visually place it on top of each other as soon as I press its activation-button. The problem is that "more elements" and "even more elements" still remain on top of it "access-wise", so for example buttons of those elements will still trigger when I interact with my popup...
So I need my popup not only visually but "really" to jump on top of everything, meaning (temporarily) below (above!?) "even more elements" within the sceen tree.
(You understood all this from the beginnig, I just clarified it once more for myself and maybe some other beginners... ; )
So what I'm looking for is some eqivalent for z-index but not only for visuals.
