Subject RE 2: cforms: date element not on top!
Date Mon, 27 Jun 2005 13:58:21 GMT
Just found some answers to my own questions i would like to share with 

When building cocoon, a cocoon-forms-block.jar is built. This file 
has a resources directory where one can find most of css and js files
that appear on ht http requests...

I've already added the z-index: 100; to the forms-calendar.css on
but even after a build, and having checked that the css inside the jar is 
changed, the date element doesn't appear on top.

As an aditional note to the problem, i must add that this date element
is being called inside a table.
