Hi All,

I am wanting to implement similar the following JQuery slide down panel but at the moment I can't work out how to make it slide over the top of my content rather than pushing the content down:

.. I think its to do with CSS layers but no success as yet.

Code attached for convenience too.

Many thanks,

Rit

Ah I see. It was actually a DIV that I was nesting this panel in that was causing the problem.

Thanks anyway.
