DHTML menu appears behind form field selector dropdowns in Internet Explorer 6

Written by Ian Carnaghan · 20 sec read >

When the menu loads, it is loading behind the html formselectors (select boxes).

Unfortunately there isn’t a fixed solution to this since select boxes have an infinite Z-Index in Internet Explorer 6.

Possible Solutions:

  1. Try putting the select box in an iframe for Internet Explorer 6. And the main page will be in front of the Iframe.
    • NoteOpera 8 has the same problem with iframes as Internet Explorer 6has with selects.
  2. Try to hide the select box with Javascript everytime the Menu hovers over the select box.
  3. Simplest fix is that the menu never overlaps the select box.
