problem with the ui panel in unity

in my unity canvas I added a panel and when this panel is active it blocks me from clicking any other buttons or elements in the canvas any idea on how I can fix it?

put the order of the panel you mentioned in the hierarchy under the buttons

  • Solution 1

The panel should be on the top of the children in the shared parent gameobject

  • Solution 2

In the panel inspector component, uncheck Raycast
