View Full Version : Drop Down Disappear

04-18-2019, 05:26 PM
1) Script Title: ddlevelsmenu

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

3) Describe problem: When I hover over the top level menu item, the drop down appears, but when I move the cursor down to select one of the drop menu selections, the drop down disappears ! If I keep trying, with different mouse movement quickness, the dropdown finally stays put, and I can select a menu item.

Is there some kind of timeout or something to keep this from happening?

I can't replicate the problem you're experiencing unfortunately.
Does it occur on the example page?
What browser are you using?

Yes it happens on the example page. Intermittent on Explorer. Also on Chrome but a bit better perhaps.
I can often get it to occur immediately after refreshing the page. Once it starts working, it sometimes
retains proper function for a while.

Further testing reveals that the issue happens rarely in Chrome. So it's essentially an Explorer issue.

I tried disabling all the Explorer addons. No better.'

Another thing that was mentioned on the web for a fix to disappearing Explorer menus was:
Yeah, I thought that was it. IIRC, the solution was to add relative positioning and a z-index to the menu container. This is from memory, but give it a try. Change the top-level ul styling to this:

ul {

What do you think?

Another thing of note:

In Explorer, there is a shadow/border between the horizontal menu and the drop down menus.
If you hesitate, even briefly, over this border, the drop down disappears.

Whereas, in Chrome, the shadow/border does not exist!
