Problem with Z-Index

I have two layers, both contains two different tables. The first one actually holds the Menu Bar and it shows/hides different layers on "MouseOver/MouseOut". The Second Layer is at the bottom of the first Layer and it contains Activex Controls.

The problem is when the user bring the mouse on the top layer which in turns shows the Drop down menu.... the layer for drop down menu always comes behind the layer which contains activex control.That means the whole drop down menu is hidden behind the activex control. If I remove the activex control and put something else, it works fine.

Please help
Thanks

ok,

i have to say there's unfortunately no solution for this. All browsers have a tendency to put certain objects allways on top of others.

Not only Active-X controls are placed on top always, the same goes for form-elements and Java Applets.

I know this is not what you want to hear..but there's no solution except using something else instead of the Active-X control like you checked.

You could wrap a div tag around the ActiveX control. Hide it when the menu is active and show it when the menu is inactive. It is a patch solution and it looks funny when things disapear and reapear but this seams to be the only way around this bug.
