Absolute Position inside a OverFlow

suppose i have a html like this:



<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head><title>
      Untitled Page
</title></head>
<body>
    <form name="form1" method="post" action="testePosicionamento.aspx" id="form1">
<div>

</div>

    <div>
        <div style="overflow:scroll;width:600px;height:100px;">
      z
      <br />

 <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
   

    function lugarCerto(ref){
        var targ = document.getElementById('teste');
        targ.style.top = ref.offsetTop+10;
        targ.style.left = ref.offsetLeft;
       
       
       
    }
</script>

<input type="text"  onKeyDown="document.getElementById('teste').style.visibility = 'visible';lugarCerto(this);" onBlur="document.getElementById('teste').style.visibility = 'hidden';" />
<br />
<div id="teste" style="background-color:Blue;visibility:hidden;position:absolute;top:0px;left:0px;">
    <select size="4" >
</select>
</div>
Resultado
    </div>
        <br />

<div>
</div></form>
</body>
</html>

copy and paste and press a key at the input text..
see where the select appears ?.. if i remove the overflow it goes ok.. but i do need the overflow.. so how can i make the div with absolute position (the div of the select) be absolute positioned INSIDE the overflow ?

ps. the select must be absolute positioned since it will be dynamicly placed.. (thats why the js also)

modify the onKeyDown for the input type="Text" as below

onKeyDown="document.getElementById('teste').style.visibility = 'visible';document.getElementById('teste').style.position=absolute;lugarCerto(this);"

basically, when you say
document.getElementById('teste').style.visibility = 'visible';
 it overwrites the style parameter, so you need to set the style completely again.

a better way to do this could be using CSS, and modifying the className for the "teste" selectbox.

lemee know if you need help with CSS and i'll pass on the code for the same
