  • Drop-in Content Box over form

    I'm using the drop-in content box to supply an editorial comment for a class project. When viewing in Netscape 4.79, any form input fields underneath the drop-in box penetrate the content. Is there some magic to NS layers to cause the drop-in box to be opaque-ish?

    See it at

    Any and all help appreciated.

      Bizarre behaviour

      Thanks for the pointer to the WebReference article. Even after reading the explanation on why form elements would wind up "on top of" my dynamic content, I still don't understand why the behaviour is different in NS and in IE. If it's an operating system thing -- seems like it would affect IE as well as NS.

      Guess that's just another of the baffling differences in browser behavious.

      Thank you for the speedy response and particularly for the reference.

        There is a workaround for this.

        1. Put your selection list in a div.

        2. Add an onmouse event for the layer. The onmouse event tells the div to be visibility=hidden. Use OnmouseOut restore it.

        3. Thus whenever your mouse is on the layer, the selection box disappears.
