Default Menu is drawn behind comboboxes


one of our sites uses a horizontal menu from http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/hvmenu/

The problem is that if a page has comboboxes (html select controls) on top of the page and a user views a menu with several sub menus, the sub menus are drawn behind the comboboxes (comboboxes on top) whereas using textboxes doesn't have this sort of effect but the sub menus are drawn over textboxes (menu on top). Now, I figure this is some sort of DHTML/JavaScript functionality which can not be changed, but is there any easy way round this? I'm using IE6.0. I'm not very familiar with JavaScript and as you all know deadlines, wouldn't want to use a lot of time doing re-coding.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the reply. Since our menu is highly 'dynamic' (created on the fly in ASP and adapts to user rights) I can not unfortunately see this solution as an option for us. We have dozens of pages, some of them have select controls, others not. Tying such a dynamic menu into controls that vary from page to page and may change over time just doesn't seem as the right way to go about it. So, I guess we'll stick with the one we have now, with all its faults. Thanks anyway.

To solve the problem in IE, you can create an iframe in the same position as each part of your menu with opacity of 0 using a filter. This will hide the part of the select box that would normally show through.
