    Question Sliding Drop-Down List Menu Problem

    Hey everyone! I'm making a horizontal navigation bar using jQuery. I want to have the drop-down menu slide down ( slideDown() ) except the drop-down menu appears on top of instead of behind the main menu before sliding into the correct position.

    Here is the HTML:
    HTML Code:
    <div id="navigation">
      <ul class="top">
        <li><a href="../news/index.php">Home</a></li>
        <li><a href="../about/index.php">About Us</a>
          <ul class="sub">
            <li>Our Teams</li>
          </ul>
        </li>
        <li><a href="../events/index.php">Events</a></li>
        <li><a href="../gallery/index.php">Media</a></li>
        <li><a href="../contact/index.php">Get Involved</a>
          <ul class="sub">
            <li>Volunteering</li>
          </ul>
        </li>
      </ul>
    </div>
    Here is the external CSS file:
    Code:
    #navigation {
    	margin: 0;
    	border-top: 5px solid #AAAAAA;
    	border-bottom: 1px solid #AAAAAA;
    	padding: 0;
    	width: inherit;
    	height: 45px;
    	background: #999999 url(../images/navigation.jpg) repeat-x;
    }
    
    #navigation ul.top {
    	margin: 0;
    	border: 0;
    	padding: 0;
    	width: inherit;
    	height: 45;
    }
    	
    #navigation ul.top > li {
    	display: inline;
    	float: left;
    	margin: 0;
    	border: 0;
    	padding: 13px 30px; 
    	font-size: 17px;
    	font-weight: bold;
    }
    
    #navigation ul.top > li:hover {
    	background: url(../images/nav_hover.jpg) repeat-x;
    }
    
    #navigation ul.sub {
    	display: none;
    	position: absolute;
    	margin-top: 13px;
    	margin-left: -30px;
    	border: 0;
    	padding: 0;
    	background: #666666;
    	list-style: none;
    	z-index = 90;
    }
    
    #navigation ul.sub > li {
    	margin: 5px 10px;
    	border: 0;
    	padding: 0;
    	font-size: 13px;
    }
    And here is the external jQuery file:
    Code:
    function mouseOver(){
    	$(this).find("ul").slideDown();
    }
    
    function mouseOut(){
    	$(this).find("ul").slideUp();
    }
    
    $(document).ready(function(){
    	$("#navigation ul > li").hover(mouseOver,mouseOut);
    });
    Thanks in advanced for the help! Let me know if you need to see more information than this.

    Thanks for the link, but I'm looking for a sliding effect. I can get it to appear using the show() function fine, but when using the slideDown() function is the problem.

    I think it may have to do with your Z-index in your CSS. Unfortunately without a full source, its pretty much like stabbing in the dark. A link to your source is always helpful to get a full picture of the issue.

    Try adding this to your #navigation

    display: inline;



    Your page looks good in Firefox, but there is a noticeable issue in IE.

    Tell me if that works.
