Stuck on an issue?

Lightrun Answers was designed to reduce the constant googling that comes with debugging 3rd party libraries. It collects links to all the places you might be looking at while hunting down a tough bug.

And, if you’re still stuck at the end, we’re happy to hop on a call to see how we can help out.

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe. I tried to render the arrow behind a component by doing something like this:

<XArrow passProps={{ style: { zIndex: -1 } }} ... />

But it doesn’t work. Is there any way to do it at the moment?

Describe the solution you’d like There should be a zIndex prop that would be passed to the svg components of the arrow. Something like this:

<XArrow zIndex={-1} ... />

Describe alternatives you’ve considered

  • I tried changing the order they were rendered, but I need to create the start and end refs dynamically, therefore, I need to render the components before I render the connection between them (I’m using use-dynamic-refs for this).
  • I also tried setting opacity to 0.99 to see if the problem was with a Stacking Context, but it didn’t work.

Additional context I want a way for the connection to be displayed behind the little gray circles.


I’m using this library for a university project, so I really need a solution for this, even if it is just a hacky workaround.
