View Full Version : CSS drop menu overlay issue on Java Applet.

01-16-2008, 09:43 PM
Does anyone know of any tips or have ideas on how to get a basic css dropdown menu from disappearing behind my java applet directly beneath it?

I have tried the absolutely positoning z-index trick to no avail, any other tricks!?

Thanks in advance! :thumbsup:

Is there a website or some code we can view to better help you? (love tha Dude quote!!)

yeah I can't give out the development link unfortunately due to confidentiality reasons. but i can tell you the following:

HTML is 100% valid
Using Strict Doctype declaration
the menu div is absolutely positioned above the applet with a z-index of 200
the applet div is absolutely positioned below the menu with a z-index of 100

If there is any js solutions I would certainly entertain those ideas as well!

Well I found a solution, now I just have to try and implement it with my current menu overlay.
