    Problem with textbox overlapping listbox at runtime

    I'm working on a program which has a drop-down, auto-complete feature similar to a programming IDE. The listbox follows the cursor and shows the dropdown right after it. If there's a potential value the listbox appears with all the available options listed. The problem I have is I make the listbox visible if there is an option and invisible when there . Once the listbox becomes invisible the next time I make it visible the textbox overlaps it. I need to be able to bring the listbox to the front whenever it is displayed. How can I do this?

    usually when something works the first time around and not the next, its because something has been reinitialized. So maybe you can find the problem with that in mind.

    er.. should it not be moved down a bit? the thing in IE, that behaves as you describe.. it is for sure that the list appears below the textfield, not on top of it/under it..
