drop down covers scroled javascript menu in IE

P: n/a
I have an javascript made menu and some forms with the dropdown
element. When the menu opens and scrolls down the drop down is
displeyed over the menu and obscures the menu choices. I have this
problem only in IE, in firefox it works ok.

Is there a solution to this problem? I tried to hide the drop down when
the menu opens but sometimes the menu covers only a small part of the
drop down, but enough to obscure the menu choice.

I would like to achive that the part of the dorp down that is not
covered, stays visible and the covered part is hidden.

I tried also with inserting the menu and the drop down in separate
div-s and set them apropriate z-index property but it doesnt work.

Does anyone have an answer to that problem?

I would apreciate it very much!

That's because selects in IE are windowed components, they arent in firefox.

Yes, move your menu or your select list.

Then move it.

Nope, you can't index a windowed item.

Move your select or your menu.

you can place an empty iframe underneath (in z-index terms) the menu,
this will go over the select element and the content will then go over
it.
