Select mouseover IE bug

There is a drop down list (select options) within the tooltip. In IE browsers, when user tries to select an option from the drop down list in the tooltip box, the tooltip box will not stay and fade out (dispersed). I believe it is an IE bug. Does anyone have solutions?

[Comment by admin] The issue has been resolved since v.2012.11.11.

We have a solution that will be available in the next release of Menucool Tooltip (scheduled to be released out before November 11, 2012).

What we will do in the solution is:

var noBubble = function (e) { if (e && e.stopPropagation) e.stopPropagation(); else window.event.cancelBubble = true; }; theSelectElm.onmouseout = noBubble;

The issue you are describing could be caused by the way Internet Explorer handles events when a user interacts with a dropdown list within a tooltip. One possible solution is to modify the behavior of the tooltip so that it stays open while the user interacts with the dropdown list.
