    Default horizontal menu drops beneath forms

    Hi,
    Can anyone help me to solve the issue on IE6 droping the horizontal menu beneath the forms (select inputs, applets,etc..)?
    http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/cs...orizontal/P80/

    On IE7 there's no problem at all, but I have lots of users running IE6.
    I already tried to put z-index on the form and also in the dropdown menu (css) to make sure the menu will always stays front, but didn't work.

    If the IE7 found a way, I'm sure there's a way to cheat IE6.
    Please help.
    Thanks in advance.

    This is a well documented IE6 problem with z-index not working for certain form elements. Unfortunately there's no easy fix. Currently the one horizontal menu on DD that supports a workaround in IE6 is Chrome CSS menu.

    you could "hide" the form while the menu is shown.
    (correct if wrong.)

    Well yes you could do as ibrux suggested, but basically what you're looking at is adding a lot of scripting to the original code, which should be a mainly CSS based menu. Check out Drop Down Tab Menu for such a menu that can hide a form while it's being dropped down.

    Thanks all. The script for hide the background worked fine, despite only hiddeing a single element at the time.

    The chrome menu it's really beautifull!! And also solves the background issue...
    Does anyone know how to mix the both so I can use the chrome in two dropdown levels?
