Disappearing Combo Boxes

Hi there

I've come across a probelm which only occurs when I add a form to a page with a menu on.

When I add a form to the page all (and only) combo boxes within the form disappear when the menu is displayed.

Am I not doing something I should be?

Many thanks

Combo Boxes disappear only if you mention containing them form in corresponding array - menu constructor parameter. It's done to expand menu over Combo Boxes. So if you don't want them disappear just remove form name from this parameter. For details, please, see Hiding forms section (

If I understand your reply and the docs correctly a form is only hidden if the 5th arg of the new menu declaration is set to the id of the form.

I haven't specified forms to hide so shouldn't the combos stay visible when the menu is displayed?

No doubt I'm missing something obvious but I appreciate your assistance.

Yes, form elements are not hided if you don't request that explicitly. Contact us providing your code if you believe everything is fine with your configuration.
