DHTML z-index + select tag issue - 02/02/04 03:48 PM

Anyone run into this? The select box is a windowed element so it's z-index is set to infine by default and you can not change it. So it you have a dynamic drop down menu the select will appear to come right through it.

Now I have been reading up on this and the work around everyone uses SUCKS!! Everywhere I go people suggest float an IFrame onMouseOver or onClick, But IFRame support is limited at best outside IE. Plus to do this if a dynamic drop down is not opened at the full length it could be the Iframe still whites out everything.


The idea is this. the Select element is a windows element. The IFrame is also. the Iframe will cover the SELECT boxes.


This is a well known issue, so I was wondering if any of you have any sugestions as far as work arounds.
