Hi,
I'm designing a user login system website with a big java applet canvas to give my user real time communication.

The design looks great, but when I put in the java applet and made it functional it conflict with javascript drop-down menu, says when you click to initiate the drop-down menu it fall (hid) behind the applet and text on the menu list are unseen.

I cannot relocate theses objects because it is a design of choice, so how can I get over with this.

The drop-drown menu is as most important as the applet because they are form in which the user can submit a query and way to connect to some other cool stuffs.

Hope you get the picture thanks in advance

Why are you trying to mix a JavaScript-based UI with an applet-based UI? That's not going to be smooth or reliable. Why not do it all in HTML/JavaScript or all in the applet?

Because, it's a social network website with incremental user base in mind, I do mostly coding in PHP and put applets in for interactive interface. I've considered using flash, but java applet is a choice.

Anybody?

I don't want to make a redesign on my website. It would take away the cool stuff along with it.
