Bug Description

In the testing version of SchoolTool (, reports will not generate. Any time I click a hyperlink that in the previous stable version would allow me to download a .pdf or .xls, nothing happens. I am running Ubuntu 13.10, and I receive no error messages (that I know of, anyways) when this happens. (Or, in this case, doesn't happen)

Changed in schooltool:
status: New → Triaged
importance: Undecided → Critical

Confirmed, I see that nothing happens when clicking on report links.

Ajax request is sent and response is received, but the dialog is not displayed.

I'd been getting this too, but nobody else could confirm or reproduce it.

A clear difference in 13.10 is an upgrade of jqueryui from 1.8 to 1.10

I am now looking at the upgrade notes. Stacking order implementation has changed so the dialog is displayed underneath, or something.

It does look like the background behind the main UI changes to a gray-ish color when it happens to me. It could be displaying underneath. (This is my first time really reporting a bug like this other than automated reports from Apport, so I'm sorry if I'm giving too much/little information.)

You've been very helpful Scott! This is definitely a mysterious bug from the user's point of view.

I have changed the package in saucy to use the included, older version of jqueryui. So it will look and work like before.

We ship a custom skin made for jqueryui 1.8 version, at src/schooltool/skin/flourish/resources/jquery/css/schooltool/jquery-ui.css

It needs to be updated.

To bring dialogs to the front, adding one css rule is enough:

.ui-front {
       z-index: 100;

But there are other issues: close button in the dialog title does not align, there are big spaces in accordion, maybe more.
