Hi,

I am having a problem with select box in IE 8. When I click on date picker the calendar opens as a popup. If the popup overlaps on the select box, the select box is getting disappeared.
It is working fine in Chrome & Mozilla.

Could some one share your suggestions to overcome this issue.

Thanks,
A

It is probably something in the calendar code that is doing it.

This is because in certain versions of IE it is impossible to set the z-index of certain form controls, like select boxes, with the result that the 'poke through' anything you try to overlay on top of them. There are two basic workarounds:

  • Use an iframe positioned exactly where the overlay will be, because that 'beats' all other elements
  • Hide all offending form controls whenever your overlay is visible

  • Sounds like your calendar widget has taken the second approach.
     
    I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
