Hello, All -

I'm aware that there is some clever code which masks the input button on the upload form. When you hover over the visible button the "invisible" input button suddenly sticks to your mouse allowing you to click it. Or something like that...!

What I want to know is, what controls this activation? I've been experimenting with uploadForms for different situations and in some instances the "invisible" button doesn't move/activate when hovering over the visible button.

I just wondered what I'd done to break it?

Hello, All -

Further to my earlier post, I noticed there is some debugging code in uploadForm which give the co-ordinates of the "TriggerRegion". When I place my cursor over the visible button, the code reports: inTriggerRegion: false - which is clearly wrong!

I seem to recall from previous experiments that the problem has something to do with the relative or absolute positioning of nested elements in the dom.

All sorted.

As I suspected, one of the parent <divs> was pushing the real co-ordinates of button down the page. I applied an overflow:hidden rule and everything snapped back into place.

Hi Perch, 

Thanks for posting and I'm glad you got it sorted out!

I actually wrote all that code but having a quick glance over it I think I'd probably have needed a good cup of coffee to remember what was going on there.  I'm really glad the comments and debugging code I left in there for myself (and you) helped!
