The standard windows select control does not have z-indexing.  So anything (other than a new window) will fall behind it.  Check out the selectbox on the site here.  It solves the problem.

Hi

I'm trying to build menus which display correctly over windowed controls like select elements. Is there any other way to show them over the top except by hiding the select elements?

I tried showing them in a transparent iframe, but this doesnt appear over them, which surprised me. Popup windows do, but you cant set these to transparent. This is a problem if you want to have nested menus, becuase you can only use one at a time so if it is big enough to show more than one rectangle it obscures more of the page than you want.

Adam
