menu items appear behind form elements
griff - 8/27/2002 at 03:47 PM

I have set up the excellent menu and all links are working fine. When a level 1 menu is displayed it overlaps a form on my html page. The menu items appear behind the form elements when they overlap a in the form. If the menu item overlaps a submit button on the form then it appears in the foreground correctly. Any pointers would be appreciated (IE5.0, Win NT4.0)
regards
Andy

I found no way to make the menu genuinely paint on top of form option boxes and this for me is a major flaw in an otherwise excellent menu system.

However, by modifying the onMouseOver() and onMouseOut functions in menu.js the visibility of a given form can be turned on and off thereby allowing the menu to appear correctly. For instance:

document.forms[0].style.visibility='hidden'

or back on again:

document.forms[0].style.visibility='visible'

Probably not at all cross-browser compatible but it works with IE6.
