Navigation Bar Sub-menus outside an Iframe

Msg#: 4203356 posted 5:34 pm on Sep 17, 2010 (gmt 0)


I'd like to create a horizontal navigation bar with lots of sub-menus in a page and then insert it to my site as an Iframe. I know how to do it, but the problem is I need to set a big height value for the iframe to see the sub-menus. How can I show the main body of navigation bar inside the iframe and the sub-menus outside of it?

Any idea might help!

I would keep it all inside the iframe, and have the whole iframe float over the top of the page as a fixed-position div so nothing is obscured. Would that work?

Thanks for the answer, but I don't know how to it. Would you mind giving an example?

You cannot use an <iframe> for popup/dropdown menus due to clipping - i.e. the menus will be limited in appearance to the <iframe> only.
