I have java-script menu that is getting behind openlayers OSM layer (only after it loads). I've tried giving z-index:9999 to the menu div but it didn't work. Any idea ? enter image description here

can we see your app? – Aragon Dec 17 '12 at 8:19
Is the map div wrapped in the same parent as the menu? – U2ros Dec 17 '12 at 8:33
U2ros - Yes it does. Aragon - I'm not sure I can show the app because of NDA. If I won't solve it soon I'll have to do something about it. – Alophind Dec 17 '12 at 20:07

I opened the example and found that your menu div id=ctl00__MenuV_MultiLevelMenun0Items has a fixed z-index = 1.

Update it to a value like 1100 so it will be on top of other things. Your menu code is pushing z-index back to 1. Fix this.
