Bing ads showing on top of flyouts

Hi all, I added the ad rotator to a project that had good behavior on the flyouts for the about, permissions, etc. Now when I activate the flyout for about the bing ad shows up on top of the flyout. This seems odd to me. The Adduplex ad does not do this, which makes me think it is some setting in the control.

Anyone else seen this?

(this is on Windows 8 obviously since that is the only platform with flyouts)

Appears this is a known issue with the bing ads control... Annoying.

This is the best blog post I found on dealing with it, but it doesn't work for my scenario.

There is a fixed Bing Ad SDK that has a new attribute to fix this. But you can't do this without building from the source.

Bing Ad Z-Index Issues

<UI:AdControl Width="250" Height="125" ApplicationId="..." AdUnitId="..." UseStaticAnchor="True" />

You have to set the UseStaticAnchor to true for this to work correctly now.

I'll see what I can do to get it included in the next release, no timeframe as yet due to both Gergely and my schedules at present
