Hi all,

I have a frame with a menubar at the top and a Panel at the bottom. I notice when I drop down my menu, the menu is blocked by my Panel. How can I make my menu show in front of the panel instead? Thank in advance

Are you using a "Panel" (as in AWT), or a "JPanel" (as in Swing)?

If the former, then try substituting a "JPanel" and see if that helps.

Here's a link with some more info:

Did you add the menu bar to the frame (using add()) or did you use setJMenuBar()?
