Hi ye wise peeps,

I'm trying my best to get parts of a layer to hide behind other layers. Is this possible, and what should I do?

It's for a kind of scrolling section for a site, but it must NOT have scrollbars, only two (up and down) buttons with onClick="moveLayer('up', 'so-far');". This means that top and bottom parts of the layer need to behind other layers (hidden).

Thanks in advance,
Jesse

Check out z-index in the CSS documentation. The same style of JavaScript that can control horizonal and vertical positioning can change the z-index value (eg. z-index 100 is higher than z-index 10).

Ah......z-Index. NOT my pal.

I've got the layers to see what is on top, but the text of z-Index: 3 is still above the backgroung image of z-Index: 4. I need the Background images of z-Index: 4 to hide the lower layer's text.

Cheers,
Jesse
