I have a kml layer, and have a popup open when the user selects on a feature.
I use OpenLayers.Control.SelectFeature and OpenLayers.Popup.FramedCloud. The selection happens when the user clicks.
If the popup is open, I cannot click, pan or zoom the map whilst within the popup div. This is particularly noticeable with the FramedCloud popup, because a large chunk of the div is transparent.
I guess the events are no longer happening as far as the map is concerned, because the div is in the way. I am not saying it is wrong, it is just confusing when it looks like you click on the map and nothing is happening.
Also, regardless of whether or not the popup is open, drag no longer works if you are over a feature (guess the event is doing something else now).
I think I would like the events to continue to happen on the map. Is that possible?
