    z-order problems

    I've got a menuing structure on my site and, when shown, it comes up behind another table and another flash file. How can I get my menu to be on top of the z-order?

    I dont think it is possible to get anything to appear over Flash, I remember it being discussed before.

    As for z-index in general, it is for "ordering" the various layers that your web page might contain over each other, the greater the number, the nearer the front it will be. So assigning a low (or minus?) z-index to the table and a higher z-index to the menu should bring the menu in front. As I've said, I dont think this applies to Flash... there might be a hack floating around for it, but none that I know of.

    I saw a thread here last month (or somewhere around then) that showed how to do it, I think borthercake posted the link, not sure though

    Any idea why this is only an NS problem?

    Interestingly enough, supposedly (at least on the Macromedia Flash forum) setting the flash animations wmode parameter to transparent allows the layer to show through. However, I had that set and it still doesn't do it on NS. I imagine that is why it works on IE.

    http://www.macromedia.com/support/fl...ents/wmode.htm Just found this, looks like you got the answer before me though. It's working for me in firefox, so I dunno why NS is having a problem
