  • pushing Applets into background

    Hi there, I'm using a very good free javascript pull down menu from "Tigra Menu"

    (http://www.softcomplex.com/products/tigra_menu/)

    The problem I'm having is I have an applet on my page, and the applet is staying in the foreground, forcing the pull down behind it.

    Anyone know how I can force the pull down to appear in front of the applet?

    Thanks!

    you can't. an applet is what's called a "windowed element" in Explorer. I don't know what Netscape calls it, but this will happen in Netscape too. what happens, is because the applet is an outside resource (ie, it's java, and not part of the browser), it will be visible no matter what, and there's no way to force your content on top of it. the only possible suggestion i have, is to try wrapping your applet inside of a DIV, and setting the div's style.display property to none, or it's style.visibility to hidden, when the menu is being used.

        That won't work either. I believe I had experimented with that years ago with no success.
