ASP 2.0 MasterPage with menu, menu appearing below content page

P: n/a
Hi All,
I'm having trouble finding a solution to this problem with ASP 2.0. I'm
using MasterPages with a menu, and if the number of elements inside a level
within the menu is too long, the entries will appear UNDER the content page.

So, is there a property that I can set that will keep all the menu entries
ON TOP while the mouse cursor is hovering over it?

TIA, Randy Smith

How is the content set up?

Most likely you have a DIV tag in the content section with a high z order.
That is a common reason for menus dropping under the content.

I am currently using a transitional form of CSS on my pages, rather than
100% CSS with DIVs. It was more a learning curve issue for one of my
coworkers, but CSS for style and tables for layout works nicely with the
menu.

Gregory,
You were right about the z-index. However, I removed all of them from my
content page, and after a few compiles and minor changes, they were back.
But, I think I have a solution to this. What do you think if I set the
z-index value for the menu around 900? Shouldn't that always place the menu
on top of everything else?

TIA,
Randy
