#4589 closed bug (invalid)

show()/hide() interact in a bizarre way when embeds and objects are nearby

Reported by: mesoconcepts Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.4
Component: effects Version: 1.3.2
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

To reproduce:

Take a video, e.g.:

Insert it into your page as an embed (the video contains the needed HTML).

Immediately above it, add something such as:

<div class="showme">
  <div class="absarea">foo</div>


  • showme will show/hide the absarea when hovered
  • absarea is absolutely positioned and large enough to intersect with the video

observed behavior:

absarea goes underneath the video when your mouse is in located where the two intersect

expected behavior:

absearea remains over the video at all times

possible workaround:

to hide the video if they intersect.

Also, for a live example, see:

Towards the bottom of the page, hover the area that goes:

Buzz Up, Digg, etc.
