I am using IE6. On opening a dialogue using jQuery UI 1.7.1 the select box appears on top of this popup. On setting bgiframe : true i am seeing that select box disappears. Could someone help to fix this IE6?

We have the same problem. I read recently that 1 in 5 businesses still use IE6 despite the fact it's past EOL.

It's a bug in IE6 - nothing you can really do about that. Select controls don't honour the z-order properly so will always appear on top. The usual work around is to implement your select control in some other way and style it to appear like its a select control, or add code to hide the select control when you open your dialog box.

tried out z-index it is not solving the problem. I should not hide the select box as that is the part of requirement. Using bgiframe i am able to keep the popup dialogue on top but the select hides in the parent.. Is there a way to keep the popup on top without hiding any elements?

No. It's a bug in IE6. This is a recording. Nothing you can do about it. Nothing. Ever.

Hiding the select element while the dialog is displayed is the only solution.
