Hello,

In a modal window I have a text field using an ajax autocomplete function. My problem is that the select option list is shown behind the modal window. I have tried to change the z-index parameters in the stylesheet file, but it seems that I can only move the select option list in front of the modal transparent background, not the modal window. I am wondering if it is possible to move the select option list in front of the modal window, ie. changing the z-index or other parameters or is there any other changes can I make?

Thanks in advance.

Modal window css code:

What is in the modal window? Flash, iframe, etc? What browser are you having issues with?

The modal window is a DHTML modal window. Please see:

I have tested on IE 7, Firefox 3.0 and Opera 9.3, all having the same problem.

So I guess it is not a browser issue but rather a code issue?

That's fine. Just let us know when you've done that so no one wastes time repeating what may have already been posted elsewhere.

I found the solution.

There is a zIndex parameter in the modal javascript file that I can change. :-)
