Hi guys,

I really need your expertise. I have a version of the vertical drop down. When the menu's sub menu extends over an IFrame (in Mozilla, FireFox, Netscape, and Opera - that I know of) the vertical drop down menu diappears when the mouse hovers over both the IFrame and the vertical drop down menu.

My page code:

<iframe name="Alumni" src="index.asp" align="center" width="100%" height="600"> 
   If you can see this, your browser doesn't understand IFRAMEs.  However, can still view the pages within this section below:<br> 
      <a href="index.asp">Home Page</a> 
      <a href="Alumni.asp">Alumni</a> 
      <a href="Contact.asp">Contact</a> 
      <a href="Details.asp">Details</a> 
      <a href="JoinAlumni.asp">Join Alumni</a> 
      <a href="Officers.asp">Officers</a> 
      <a href="Events.asp">Events</a> 
      <a href="WebPages.asp">WebPages</a> 
</iframe>

My css:
http://www.fsus.fsu.edu/FSUSNew/includes/fsus2.css

My menu:
http://www.fsus.fsu.edu/FSUSNew/includes/top.asp

The page:
http://www.fsus.fsu.edu/FSUSNew/SchoolInformation/SchoolRelations/Alumni/IndexIFrame.asp

Thank you. Andrew

Vertical Menu hover over IFrame Question

OK Andrew,

IFrames appear to take precidence over CSS as the ':hover' pseudo-class loses its effect when the IFrame gains focus in the browser.

Javascript can overide the IFrame's need for attention, but I don't think you wanted to hear that. Nothing is wrong with your coding, but it's just 'one of those things' that we all tend to curse at after hours of mindless debugging.

Sorry I couldn't be much help.

Vertical Menu hover over IFrame Question

I have a site I did at work where the dropdown menu does overlay the iframe with no problems.

There WERE issues in getting it working though, but I can't remember what they were, sorry, have a play around and I'll try to remember to come back to look at this thread tomorrow when I can look at my code - it can be done!

Vertical Menu hover over IFrame Question

the answer to this question would be very helpful, but I'm afraid it' just a bug
or .. maybe there are some nasty solutions to this one ? Smile
