Hi all,

I have created a page in HTML which has dropdown box.In header of this page I have a tab click on tab opens submenu with two links.

Click on submenu link opens a popup window.

My problem is when I run this page in IE6 when i move popup the dropdown menu is overlapping the popup window.

For this what I did is I have created a iframe of size equal to popup window and i gave opacity as 0.Now popup is coming over the dropdown menu.but thing is when I move popup frame is not moving along with the pop up window.

can anybody help me to resolve this.

Application is working fine in IE7.

Thanks in advance.

This is a well--know issue with IE6. Your choices are to use a heavy-weight component such as an iframe (as you have discovered) or to hide the select elements while the menu is displayed.
