    Default Drop Down Menu Help

    Hi all,

    I'm using "HV MENU5.5" and it works great, except for one thing.

    I have a drop down box containing a list of variables a user can select in the actual html file. The top menu drop down works fine, except when it tries to appear in front of the drop down box, it always appears behind it and obscures a menu option.

    Is there any way to alter the script so the menus that drop down will appear over top of the drop down box?

    Here are the settings:

    	var NoOffFirstLineMenus=5;			// Number of first level items
    	var LowBgColor='3300CC';			// Background color when mouse is not over
    	var LowSubBgColor='1E90FF';			// Background color when mouse is not over on subs
    	var HighBgColor='1E90FF';			// Background color when mouse is over
    	var HighSubBgColor='gray';			// Background color when mouse is over on subs
    	var FontLowColor='white';			// Font color when mouse is not over
    	var FontSubLowColor='black';			// Font color subs when mouse is not over
    	var FontHighColor='white';			// Font color when mouse is over
    	var FontSubHighColor='white';			// Font color subs when mouse is over
    	var BorderColor='4169E1';			// Border color
    	var BorderSubColor='black';			// Border color for subs
    	var BorderWidth=1;				// Border width
    	var BorderBtwnElmnts=1;			// Border between elements 1 or 0
    	var FontFamily="arial,comic sans ms,technical"	// Font family menu items
    	var FontSize=9;				// Font size menu items
    	var FontBold=1;				// Bold menu items 1 or 0
    	var FontItalic=0;				// Italic menu items 1 or 0
    	var MenuTextCentered='left';			// Item text position 'left', 'center' or 'right'
    	var MenuCentered='left';			// Menu horizontal position 'left', 'center' or 'right'
    	var MenuVerticalCentered='top';		// Menu vertical position 'top', 'middle','bottom' or static
    	var ChildOverlap=.2;				// horizontal overlap child/ parent
    	var ChildVerticalOverlap=.2;			// vertical overlap child/ parent
    	var StartTop=2;				// Menu offset x coordinate
    	var StartLeft=2;				// Menu offset y coordinate
    	var VerCorrect=0;				// Multiple frames y correction
    	var HorCorrect=0;				// Multiple frames x correction
    	var LeftPaddng=3;				// Left padding
    	var TopPaddng=2;				// Top padding
    	var FirstLineHorizontal=1;			// SET TO 1 FOR HORIZONTAL MENU, 0 FOR VERTICAL
    	var MenuFramesVertical=1;			// Frames in cols or rows 1 or 0
    	var DissapearDelay=500;			// delay before menu folds in
    	var TakeOverBgColor=1;			// Menu frame takes over background color subitem frame
    	var FirstLineFrame='navig';			// Frame where first level appears
    	var SecLineFrame='space';			// Frame where sub levels appear
    	var DocTargetFrame='space';			// Frame where target documents appear
    	var TargetLoc='';				// span id for relative positioning
    	var HideTop=0;				// Hide first level when loading new document 1 or 0
    	var MenuWrap=1;				// enables/ disables menu wrap 1 or 0
    	var RightToLeft=0;				// enables/ disables right to left unfold 1 or 0
    	var UnfoldsOnClick=0;			// Level 1 unfolds onclick/ onmouseover
    	var WebMasterCheck=0;			// menu tree checking on or off 1 or 0
    	var ShowArrow=1;				// Uses arrow gifs when 1
    	var KeepHilite=1;				// Keep selected path highligthed
    Thanks for any help.

    *Points* Look at my signature, there's a link about Form controls showing through DHTML layers. You need to have a look at that.

    Thanks, I can get the gist of it. But I can't get it working with the menu I'm using from dynamic drive.

    It's not setup remotely in the same way.

    With HV Menu, I'm not aware of any easy solution to getting the menu to appear on top of form elements. This is a feature that needs to be built in. The most common technique is to actually hide the form element in question using DHTML when the two comes in contact. This is a feature that needs to be explicitly added in, and is rather complicated to write.
