MM_swapImage over Dropdown's.

Posted on 2004-09-07

I have 2 dropdown's just below the navigational bar.

And when i mouse over the navigational bar, there are 3 to 6 items in the navigation.

If there is textbox or lable, then the menu items stay on the top of it.


If there is a dropdown or an select element, then the menu items go
"BEHIND the dropdown list" and it is tough to select either the dropdown or menu items.

I am using the regular functions :

<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
function MM_preloadImages() { //v3.0
  var d=document; if(d.images){ if(!d.MM_p) d.MM_p=new Array();
    var i,j=d.MM_p.length,a=MM_preloadImages.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length; i++)
    if (a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){ d.MM_p[j]=new Image; d.MM_p[j++].src=a[i];}}
}

function MM_swapImgRestore() { //v3.0
      var i,x,a=document.MM_sr; for(i=0;a&&i<a.length&&(x=a[i])&&x.oSrc;i++) x.src=x.oSrc;
}

function MM_findObj(n, d) { //v4.01
  var p,i,x;  if(!d) d=document; if((p=n.indexOf("?"))>0&&parent.frames.length) {
    d=parent.frames[n.substring(p+1)].document; n=n.substring(0,p);}
  if(!(x=d[n])&&d.all) x=d.all[n]; for (i=0;!x&&i<d.forms.length;i++) x=d.forms[i][n];
  for(i=0;!x&&d.layers&&i<d.layers.length;i++) x=MM_findObj(n,d.layers[i].document);
  if(!x && d.getElementById) x=d.getElementById(n); return x;
}

function MM_swapImage() { //v3.0
      var i,j=0,x,a=MM_swapImage.arguments; document.MM_sr=new Array; for(i=0;i<(a.length-2);i+=3)
      if ((x=MM_findObj(a[i]))!=null){document.MM_sr[j++]=x; if(!x.oSrc) x.oSrc=x.src; x.src=a[i+2];}
}
//-->
</script>

Hi

If I remember correctly, form elements, like applets, are on the supreme layer, so it's pretty much impossible to put your menu over (at least from what I've heard)

There is an extremly difficult workaround to overlay the selects by an iframe exactly below your images.
But that would complicate the page unnecessary.
There is no other way around the select problem (except to hide the complette select object for the overlay moment).

We just said it was pretty much impossible... If you want to talk of alternatives, we'd be happy to hear them or suggest them...

Complette is it first together with the HTML page source where the scripts are used.
