SELECTs pierce thru the Dialog in IE6

Reported by: snobo Owned by: paul
Priority: major Milestone: 1.2.4
Component: ui Version: 1.2.3

It is a known issue that in IE lte 6, SELECT controls cannot be hovered by any element except IFRAME (they are seen through). Apparently, jQuery.dialog doesn't employ dynamically created iframe, because if SELECTs are present on a page, they pierce thru an open dialog.

It would be great if the jQuery.dialog would create an Iframe the size of the dialog, placed under it, on the fly; of course only for IE5/IE6.

There is now an option to use bgiframe on dialogs (requires latest SVN - added after 1.5b):

    bgiframe: true

Or, you could change the defaults so that all dialogs use bgiframe:

$.ui.dialog.defaults.bgiframe = true;

I should note that this requires the bgiframe plugin.
