    I am using drop down menu in my pages.
    In one of my page,there is a listbox control below the
    menu. This listbox control is hiding the drop down menu
    items. How can i make the drop down menu not to be hidden
    by the listbox control?
    I tried to increase the z-index for the menu control. But
    it did not help.

    I believe that's built-in the browser and as long as you use standard
    listbox/ddl (SELECT element) you can't control it. If you do the listbox as
    some DHTML trick then the case can be different.

  4. Reb,

    It can't be done. This is a known issue with Internet Explorer where Select
    Drop-Downs and Select Lists will display over the top of every other element
    on the page.

    Unless you employ some DHTML trickery to hide all SELECT elements when your
    DIVs are displayed, you'll always have this problem.

    Post some requests in the JScript newsgroups, and the guys there will be
    better poised to answer your questions, as this isn't really ASP.NET related
    I'm afraid.
