Initial Email Subject:  make a sub menu layered behind it's parent menu item
Support Case Month: October 2013

I am trying to make a submenu appear beneath it's parent menu. How can I achieve this? So that the z-index of the sub menu is say 999 and the main menu is 1000

it has to do with hiding a part of a top border of the sub menu, but only the part below the parent button a top it.

Thanks,
Nick

Hello Nick,

In general this has to do with the "Appear Where" property.
In order to achieve that you need to go to Sub Groups Style -> Appears – Where -> and set the distance of the selected edge. Here I have set it to be -10 pixels so that It appears like in the screenshot below:

submenu appears where property

menu preview

Note though that the z-index value is a global property, which means you cannot have different z-index value in main menu items than in submenu items.

Thank you!

Please see attached file and see {URL REMOVED}. 
When you slide your cursor over What We Do, the menu appears behind the changing graphics.  They are not done in Flash.  I have set the z-index to 11.  How can I fix this?

The div with class “gallerylayer” has z-index=1000!

To fix this, change the menu z-index to 2000 (to be sure).

Hello,
I notice on some computers the dropdown menu is under the flash rotating image that I have on the website.

Hello,

Indeed in Internet Explorer your menu goes behind the flash scroller.

This happens because the flash applet ignores the z-index ordering. To resolve this problem, you need to add the ?wmode=transparent? parameter into your flash applet, so that it respects the z-index order.

Please have a look here for more details and examples:

flash object and z-index property

Support Case Month: April 2013

Dear reader,

after the last update of Likno Modal Windows, the Likno Menu stays on top of all objects also the LWMW-layer. Setting z-index of the menu to -1 did solve it for Firefox, Chrome but not for Internet Explorer 10

What to do?

Thank you for your help in advance.

Kind regards,
RuuRd

Dear RuuRd,

Where did you set the z-index to -1? I checked your site and I see that the menu is set to z-index: 1000.

z-index CSS property

The same is true for the modal window. Please change the modal window z-index to 1010 or the menu  z-index to 990 in order to fix this problem.

Thank you Kostas,

I forgot that this value is (or can be) set in the IDE of AllWebMenus, so I did set the other value somewhere else in my code (later executed).

Kind regards,
RuuRd

Initial Email Subject: Menu Question
Support Case Month: March 2013

Hi,

I want to know if this is possible with your menu program.

I built a sliding menu. I placed it in a DIV. Then I linked the menu to many different anchors. When you click an item in the menu it goes to that item BUT the menu floats to the bottom of the page? I want the menu to stick at the selected anchor, so the menu is lined up, side by side with that item. Is this possible? and if yes, how do you set that up?

Also, the floating menu goes behind my main nav, and it also was made with your program. I read about the z_index but it says to leave it a 1000? How can I make it go over the nav?

Please let me know.

Thanks!
Robert

Dear Robert,

I am afraid there is no way to have the menu always appearing next to the anchor of what you clicked. Still, there is something you can do to make it look better in some cases.

Currently the menu always stays in the exact same place where you positioned it, relative to the browser window.

If you set the menu to be “Advanced Floating” then you can have it stick with the page until it reaches the top of the window and then float there until you reach the end of the page. Since when you call an anchor the page is automatically scrolled to put it at the top of the page, this will work in most cases. It will not work for the last part of the page that never reaches the top of the window. So this will give you a partial solution to the problem. Also note however that this requires that you purchase the Advanced Floating Add-in, so it is up to you to decide if it is worth the cost.

Regarding the z_index, where did you see that you “have to leave it at 1000”? You can change it as you wish! And if you want the floating menu to be on top, simply make its z_index bigger than the z_index of the other menu.
