Javascript item hiding submenu


Poster: jwilk
Dated: Tuesday November 5 2002 - 16:28:35 GMT

I am having trouble with the sub menu being hidden behind a javascript item. I have searched this forum and realize that the answer is probably here, but just beyond my skill level.

Now having whined and explained that I am just beyond beginner status, :oops: would someone PLEASE take a look at this page (currently hidden on our server until I get it finished) and tell me exactly what I need to do to fix this.
Many many thanks!

No, it's really not a joke. One of my drop downs, the one labeled "About Bcc" has it's last item hidden partially by the javascript item that is the slide show. I guess it could be affected by the viewer's screen resolution. But, I was seriously asking for advice.

Hi Jwilk,

All right I see ..
Tested it in 800x600 resolution
It's definitely affected by the viewer's screen resolution.

Iet's an applet you are using there.

Code: Select all

<applet width="232" height="250" code="fadeshow.class">
...
</applet>

Try adjusting the width and height or insert a few <BR> tags before !!
Or ..

Code: Select all

"right",   // Screen Position - here you can use "center;left;right;middle;top;bottom" or a combination of "center:middle"
set the menu screen positon to right !!

Cheers,
Trytrix

Javascript item hiding

Thanks for your suggestions. I was hoping for a way to make the menu appear on top of the javascript item. Moving the slide show, or changing it's size is really not an option, or more specifically, those changes would have to be too major to allow viewing of the slide show.
Thanks anyway!

Actually with this problem, I was hoping for a fix like the one to hide forms when they overlap a menu. There is an example on the main page dealing with a workaround for forms. It involves using the <DIV> tag, and I confess, I don't understand the example.

Anybody have any experience with this?

I suppose you could try taking the form-hiding approach. Place your <APPLET> block in a <DIV>. Giv the DIV an ID, and have the appropriate menus hide that DIV when they drop. I have no idea if it'll work, but it's at least worth a shot.

Also, I have no idea if you can apply a css class to an applet (never tried), but you might investigate the possibility of creating a class to apply that would decrease the z-index, so that the applet occupies a layer behind the menu. Again, don't know if it's possible, but it's worth lookin into.

Good luck,

Kevin

Thanks Kevin! The form hiding method worked, once I figured out exactly WHERE to put the code. :oops: I confess it took several attempts, but I finally got it to work.

I really appreciate your help with this.
