View Full Version : Need Dynamic Image Selector Script Help

10-13-2004, 02:28 PM
I'm using the Dynamic Image selector Script on my web and would like to customize certain features of the script but have not been able to figure out how to accomplish what I am looking for.
#1 - I want to change the fonts inside the selection box.
#2 - Inside the selection box, when crossing an optgroup boundary, I would like the images to be updated without having to reselect an option after crossing the boundary.
#3 - I would like my selection box to be layered such that my menus are not hidden when selected. Currently when th ebox appears, I can not get my menus to be "always on top".

#1 I'll be interested to hear more.
#2 Can I add a blank entry to fake it out. I'll try this tonight.
#3 Attached image of IE. Not sure why this happens if it works for you. I've tried layering without success.

In reference to #3, from about.com

"One caveat is that if you have form elements on the main page, some browsers treat certain form elements as if they were always in the topmost layer. That means that some form elements may end up showing on top of the modal dialog and may still be active. In Internet Explorer, the SELECT form elements behave this way. In Netscape 4.x several types of form elements exhibit this behavior."

As for stylising the font in form elements, this document http://www.456bereastreet.com/archive/200409/styling_form_controls.html?q=p will show you how to (with any luck) :)
