1) Script Title: drop down html control

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/dropdowncontrol.htm

3) Describe problem:

In the following link to my website, the drop down menus show up behind the RSS feed preview in Internet Explorer; however, they show up as they should in front of the preview in Firefox.

Is there a fix for this?

Thanks for your help, Elbee

Hi Elbee, I can't come up with a trick for that situation right now, but I know that this problem has been giving many a coder a great headache. We will see if somebody else has a solution, otherwise you may want to consider putting a nice picture at the top of the page thus avoiding the overlap between the iframe and the dropdown.

Currently the only menu on DD that has a mechanism in place for dealing with the IFRAME overlapping issue in IE is All Levels Menu (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/ddlevelsmenu/index.htm). It supports the IFRAME shim feature that when turned on should do the trick here.

looks like it was a classic ie problem
how about adding

position:relative;
z-index:999;
somewhere on the dropdown css rule?

Do you have any other suggestions since the
position:relative;
z-index:999;
didn't work?

I'm going crazy! The menus are just like I want them and everything looks great in Firefox. There must be something I can do to fix the problem in IE.

My code for the iframe:
<iframe
src="http://jplcalendar.coj.net/evanced/lib/eventsxml.asp?lib=0&nd=60&dm=rss2"
width="72%" height="450" scrolling="auto" code border="0" frameborder="0"></iframe>
