Hi all...

well i have a little bit of hair left after finally finding the problem.

Basically i have a number of iframes, some which show ontop of others - in one that was infront i was trying to capture mouse positions for a color picker. Should have been pretty straight forward.

However.... it wasnt registering when the mouse moved, i set a div mousemove event to be handled by some function, and it only seemed to register each time i left the div, however when i left it printed out a backlog of the mouse positions - so it was actually recording them - just not giving me the positions on the fly.

The best way to explain is to show you - made some examples:

How it is working: http://iisoft.biz/cms/rtetest2.php


Basically i tracked the problem down to this: If you have an iframe above an element which has a forms <select> element - then you will get the problem.

There lies the problem, as that is what I have - anyone see a way around this, or why it happens in the first place? The iframe that is on top merely has to be touching the bottom frame with the <select> element and it causes a problem.
I tried changing the mousemove event of the select element to null, but that didnt help either.

Also the problem only happens if the select element is scrolled into view, so basically if the top iframe touches the select element at all.

Crazy *cry*

No one?

Ugh... i hate these form selects, they seem to be the root of many problems.

Anyone know the best term to look up regarding form selects in google etc? The term 'select' is too broad, they must be known as something else.

The Select Frame in IE <= 6 is actually a windows control and does not behave in any coherent way in relation to the other controls.

I'm afraid you're mostly out of luck, either built your own drop down select or wait for IE 7.
