I am trying to create a drop down form. Because it flat out doesn't work with Tigra Gold due to the transparent mouse sensitive layer and attempts to
use Hints was hindered by positioning problems I am using Tigra Menu (Free) for this purpose.
This works admirably for this purpose in all browsers except IE. The problem here is that whilst the mouse is over the background of the item it is fine, but when the mouse is over the form elements (text input and the like) the drop down acts as though the mouse had left it.
Is there anyway to work around/fix this?
It sounds like IE issues mouseout event for the menu item when you rollover the form elements. You can add mouseover attribute to the form elements and cancel the mouseout timer of the menu from there.
