ASP.NET 2.0 Menu control - dropdown items hidden under other page controls

Surely I can't be the only one to experience this...  I have a menu control on the top of my page, which has submenu items dropping down off the main items.  The problem is, when I try to select one of the submenu items, it becomes hidden underneath another control on the page.  Any way that I can make the menu stay on the top of everything else?
As an extra, some of my menus, when rendered, show up in red letters when I specified them to be blue.  

Any ideas?

can you paste a part of your menu source code ?...

Anyway, If you place your menu in Master page (most of ppl does) this problem will be gone. Or else, put your menu in a <div> and set the z-order as big as you thing it fit (the bigger, the closer to the screen)

<div style="z-order:10">
      <asp:Menu ... your menu>
</div>

The color thing, I guess you set the wrong property (cause if you select auto format there will be generated code for static and dynamic menu items, blah blah), may be you modified wrong property

Hope this help

I gave that <div> thing a try, but it didn't work.  Thanks for the thought though.  I had the menu control in a user control.... THAT what caused the problem.

ohh I think I made it in not enough infor way: it should be z-index, instead of z-order.

<div style="z-index:10; position:relative">
      <asp:Menu ... your menu>
</div>

The z-index only worNote: Z-index only works on elements that have been positioned (eg position:absolute;)... it's nice to know when you wanna do something concerning about stack order.

Anyway, gj you got it yourself ^^.

Thanks for the credit ^^
