this is a problem with every DHTML menu builder I've tried. The best explanation I've found is at <a href="http://software.xfx.net/utilities/dmbuilder/faq/behavior.htm#Q3">http://software.xfx.net/utilities/dmbuilder/faq/behavior.htm#Q3</a>. xFX's solution is to hide the combo box form element when the menu is displayed. My solution is to position the Sothink menu bar in the upper right corner of the screen so that it doesn't overlay any combo boxes when it pops up - no the most elegant solution, but it works.<br><br>

Here's a better explanation at Macromedia's Fireworks support page: <a href="http://www.macromedia.com/support/fireworks/ts/documents/pop-up_menus_and_active_con.htm#form">http://www.macromedia.com/support/fireworks/ts/documents/pop-up_menus_and_active_con.htm#form</a><br><br>

Here is another article which supports the facts:<br><br>http://www.coalesys.com/support/kb/document.asp?id=85<br><br>Notice that the problem is automatically handled by hiding the combo boxes when the menu pops up. There is also a link on that page to a Microsoft KB Article which explains the nature of "windowed" controls under IE (which the SELECT element is).<br><br>
