How to set iPhone UI View z index?


UIView siblings are stacked in the order in which they are added to their superview. The UIView hierarchy methods and properties are there to manage view order. In UIView.h:

@property(nonatomic,readonly) UIView *superview;
@property(nonatomic,readonly,copy) NSArray *subviews;

- (void)removeFromSuperview;
- (void)insertSubview:(UIView *)view atIndex:(NSInteger)index;
- (void)exchangeSubviewAtIndex:(NSInteger)index1 withSubviewAtIndex:(NSInteger)index2;

- (void)addSubview:(UIView *)view;
- (void)insertSubview:(UIView *)view belowSubview:(UIView *)siblingSubview;
- (void)insertSubview:(UIView *)view aboveSubview:(UIView *)siblingSubview;

- (void)bringSubviewToFront:(UIView *)view;
- (void)sendSubviewToBack:(UIView *)view;

The sibling views are ordered back to front in the subviews array. So the topmost view will be:

[parentView.subviews lastObject];

and bottom view will be:

[parentView.subviews objectAtIndex:0];

[parentView bringSubviewToFront:view] will bring the view to the top, but this is only the case if the views are all siblings in the hierarchy.
