problem with the css overflow: hidden property

hi EE,
I have the following html segment to illustrate my problem.  
If you look at this html you'll see a class called 'OutboundDaySliderContainer' which uses the overflow: hidden css property.  This causes the orange graphic (included in the markup) to display incorrectly.  The problem being is that the full width is cut off.  If you comment out the overflow: hidden property you'll see how the graphic should display.

is it possible to make the 'UrgencyMessage.gif' display correctly without removing the overflow: hidden property?  i.e. is there anything in jquery that can be done or some sort of z-index setting?  i've experimented but my attempts have failed so far.

many thanks,

Hello,

No, there is nothing that can be done if you want to keep overflow hidden and the image inside that div. You would have to move that img outside of that either in the markup or with jquery

Thanks

Ok thanks. Can I have an example where it works using JavaScript? As the position and widths need to stay the same.
Thank you

Or you can scale down the image by specifying its width and height.

are you saying that I can just write the div content into a javascript string and then display that on hover which will not experience the same problem with the overflow: hidden?

Hey,

Sorry for the late reply.

You would have to move the urgency message stuff outside of this div <div class="OutboundDaySliderContainer">

For instance, you could position your urgency message stuff, like this:

<div id='' class="calendarView contain" style="position:relative">
<div class="OutboundDaySliderContainer"></div>
<div class="UrgencyMessage" id="UrgencyMessage2420108">
 <div class="UrgencyMessageInner">
   test
  </div>
 </div>
</div>


.UrgencyMessage
        {
            background: url("http://www.jamesradford.net/UrgencyMessage.gif") no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
            color: #FFFFFF;
            display: none;
            font-weight: bold;
            height: 70px;
            margin-left: 80px;
            margin-top: 53px;
            padding-top: 12px;
            position: absolute;
top:20px;
right:20px;
            width: 200px;
            z-index: 1;
        }

play with the right and top values above


Hope this helps
