The title just about says it all - I need to be able to position a DIV element over a specific cell in a table. We're looking at building an app that generates a timeline view for schedules - similar to the TIMELINE view in Outlook where the description for the time line appear immediately above the timeline.
I was thinking about marking the starting sell with a specific ID that is later referenced when it comes time to create & position the DIV. The idea is to use the ID to retreive the specific location on screen and then position the DIV at the horizontal position of the cell and at a vertical position less than the cell.
When the table is created, every other row would contain timeline information so that the corresponding labels would be placed in the empty row of cells. Placing the DIV on top of the time line isn't an option as there is no guarantee that the length of the text in the div would be the same as the timeline. White text on a blue timeline would work as long as the time line is long enough to display it.
