Hint obscured by select boxes?
Xyress - 4/24/2003 at 10:33 PM

I'm trying to display a hint in a form and when it appears over select boxes, the tool tip goes behind them and is obscured.

Is there any way around this?

Unfortunately, base version doesn't support mentioned functionality.

Are there any plans for a PRO version? I'd gladly pay for this functionality - I've been very impressed with all of the Tigra products I've used (Calendar & Menu).

I was browsing the other boards yesterday and noticed that Tigra Menu Pro now handles this issue (at least that's what I thought it meant). Does that mean that there is a known way to get around it?

Well, I've been browsing Google Groups and in doing a little experimenting, it looks like there really isn't much you can do to get around the problem - it's because IE treats Select Boxes differently.

It works fine on Mozilla, Netscape though because they render their own form controls. I ended up getting it to work though in my application just by making enough room for a vertical alley where there wouldn't be any select boxes where my Tigra Hint was going to appear.

Thanks for the free code - it *really* makes my page look slick!

Yes, we are planning to issue PRO version but we haven't completed its feature set. If you have any suggestions we would appreciate them much.

in my opionion getting around the "select boxes" problem would already be a sufficient feature set for a Pro Version.
