Pop up a DIV tag over the Select tag is finally fixed in IE7 in FF 2.x

SELECT tag is what a DropDowList in Asp.Net renders to in HTML and it's a standard web control.

 

If you ever had to pop up a DIV over it (a menu in most cases) then you know that in IE6 and below and FireFox 1.x 

the select tag showed over the div tag. This was/is annoying as hell.

There was a hack for this by putting an IFrame into a DIV but this introduced problems with linking etc...

 

Now FINALLY this is fixed in IE7 and FireFox 2.x.

 

I'm glad! Aren't you? :)

Hello Sir!

I am very happy to read this. Why wasn't this done before? It was really a not good thing. Thank you sir for telling me this. Now I can say to my customers to download a new version of IE, and problems will be fixed. I am so happy. I really thank you sir for telling me this.

One "solution" I've seen to this is to change all SELECT to INPUT for the duration that the pop-up is active.

but then you have to change them back...
which means you have to have a list that holds the id's of the selects...
too much hassle if you ask me.

But it's an interesting idea.
