This is only occuring in IE right now....

Unfortunately this is an intranet site and I cannot post a link.. here goes..

Was trying to make a 'Please Wait' menu popup over the application when a link is clicked. Basically a big box that lets the user know their request in processing and to cover up other links they could click. It works fine on most screens, but if the screen has a select drop-down that appears under the menu, it shows through.

I'm on v5.732 of the menu

Thanks in advance

We really need to see this. Either get a test page posted somewhere or post all code here (css, html, menu_data). Don't forget to use the BBCode code tage when posting code.

I think i need to add a signature that says, 'Sorry, intranet site, can't post url' to save some time :)

I was searching back posts and found this
which seemed to be the same problem.

It also works ok in FireFox.

menu is declared as

      with(milonic=new menuname("please_wait_menu")){
         aI("image=" + imageContext + "/wait.gif;text=Please Wait...;itemwidth=600;itemheight=400;pointer=wait;");

so it's outside of any div that could be affecting the position. Tried setting the zindex at some high value to make sure it wasnt falling underneath.

Again, I know it hard without an actual site.

One other thought. We have not yet purchased a license (it's coming don't worry, just need to prove all our needs our met by it first). Would that be a limiting factor at all?

Didn't ask for a URL. Asked for either a test page loaded or all code posted here...
