hi all,
In my application home page is divided into header,body and footer.
In between header and body i am putting one pull down menu.The menu is coming ,but it is not appearing infront of the body,instead it is coming behind the body.Is there any way so that menu frame appears above body?
what i am using is A single frameset and inside 4 frames for header,menu,body anf footer.
thanks

Frames are seperate pages so there is no way for data to go over the borders. Now is this a JavaScript dropdown or is it a select element?

It is not select.A pulldown menu created by using some javascripts.The probelm is,when the pulldown appears since the body frames is there,that menu is not at all visible.

Than you either should avoid frames or you need to find a menu that has frame support. Some have the ability to do it. You just have to search.

It depends on what are you using for menu elements, and in what context there are created.
If your solution required for IE only, use popup element

Here is another idea. this is prove of concept code, that works in IE and Firefox. I was pretty sure it won't work, but it does.
