DIV and Dropdowns

Hello NG

If I let appear a DIV over a HTML site with dropdowns, this dropdowns are
still visible.
Is there a way to push them to the back? All other form elements arent
visible.

No. Some form controls are implmented as OS level controls, not browser
level controls. Thus they are rendered after any other HTML.

Alternatives include (in order of preference):

1. Don't make divs appear on top of other things (assuming you are using
them for a menu - such menus don't rate too highly on the usability front)

2. Make the form control visibility: hidden when the div is displayed

3. Build your own select element out of divs and a heck of a lot of
JavaScript (which won't degrade cleanly).
