1) Script Title: Blue tab drop down menu

2) http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/droptabmenu.htm (I think!)

3) I had a DWT template made for me utilizing a blue tab drop down menu, below the menu there is an inline frame containing a silverlight photo gallery. When the mouseover opens the menu, much of it disappears behind the photo gallery in the frame. How can I fix it? Also one of the drop down menus contains so many items that they disappear off the bottom of the page is it possible to make it wrap or scroll. It can be seen at http://www.sign-blanks.com/test1/gallerytest3.html I'm not sure what you need to see, so if you need anything else let me know.

Thank you, Trevor

Hmm this sounds like an issue that is best resolved by tweaking your Silverlight control actually. In Flash for example, there is the attribute wmode="transparent" you can add to a Flash object so DHTML layers will show above it when the two come in contact. Is there something similar in Silverlight?

Thanks for you reply; I have asked on the silverlight site.

Can you help me with the other part of my question

Are you referring to the "type of signs" menu item? In general the drop down menus will drop upwards from the menu item if there isn't enough space below it. Since Silverlight is blocking the view of the drop down menus, I can't see exactly where it's dropping down now. If you wish however, you can specify a set height for a particular drop down menu and have it be scrollable. For example:


<div id="dropmenu1_b" class="dropmenudiv_b" style="height:300px;overflow-y:scroll">

</div>

Thank you very much, I placed the code in but I'm getting an error for overflow-y
"The property is marked invalid because it is not supported by the current schema'
Any ideas please.

I'm not too worried about the overflow as the scroll works, however is there anyway I can put in a different colored line of text as the first item at the top of the menu to let my customers know to use the scroll bar as its hard to see? or can I change the color of the scroll bar ?

Thanks very much for your help
