Hi,

My page is a pages containing frames (2)
The top frame contains a kind of menu (like Microsoft site)
I do this using DIVs that are set visible or not.

Unfortunately, some DIVs are bigger than the size of my frame, and I lose a part of it

Question:
How can I say that a DIV from one frame may show itself over the borders of that frame.

TIA
Yves

You cannot.

They are essentially separate docs and you cannot have one overlapping another. (AFAIK)

You can use tables instead.

You are not going to put a div over a frame border, except maybe in IE5.5.  You are not going
to put a div ove form elements, again except with IE5.5 and only for some types... maybe.

That is the limitation of the technology.  If you want pages and pages of script that sort of
works sometime... just wait for it.

When you get ready for optional workarounds and a chnge in your design let me know and
I'll see what can be done.

I have a workaround :
Flat menus like on http://www.standaard.be/nieuws/binnenland/index.asp

But that's my last resort .....

I would use the workaround if you want to do the framed design.

Yes, I want the frame design ...
I already have some 350 pages.

My menu is getting "filled".  That's why I considered the dropdown solution ....

Hmm, nobody answers this anymore.
If nobody responds anymore, I'll ask EE to split the points between ClassyLinks (because it can't be done) and CobolDinosaur for his help.

I don't think we have any more of a solution, I'm afraid.
