1) Script Title: DHTML Window Widget (v1.1)

2) Script URL (on DD):
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex8/dhtmlwindow/

3) Describe problem:

Problem shows up in Internet Explorer 6.

When the Window Widget is positioned over a form, the dropdown form
item appears above the Window Widget.

Screenshot:

See live: http://bit.ly/1ci2IJ (to open DHTML Widget Window, click one of
the links in the list - "Positions available in Ottawa")


Any ideas?

Thanks.

The same problem occurs in Firefox 3.5.2 when there is an Adobe Flash
file under the floating window widget. The Adobe Flash appears above
the window widget.

This is a general issue in IE6 with select menus bleeding through DHTML layers. Since IE6 is basically on the way out, it shouldn't be a huge problem.

For Adobe Flash bleeding through, you might want to try the suggestion described here (http://www.communitymx.com/content/article.cfm?cid=e5141), which is to add:


wmode="transparent"

inside your Flash object.
