Im looking to show a div in the centre of my page, and then disable all other controls on the page.

My idea is to have a div with absolute positioning, and then set the background colout to solid white, so you cant see anything in the background.

I know how to show the div, but have no idea how to set the background of the div, or float the div on top of everything else.

Any ideas would be appriciated.

Thank you

try this simple one also

div.whiteDivOverlay
{
   background-color:#ffffff;
   position: absolute;
   top: 0px;
   left: 0px;
   width: 100%;
   height: 100%;
  z-index: 10000;
}

this will completely whitewash the screen :)
