Okay.... I just got me a macromedia shockwave banner on my site that I created. However, prior to puttin it there.... I have a drop dow menu.... when you roll over the menu item a box drops down with options. The menu that appears, appears above all elements in the page.. (z-index:20) but since the macromedia movie is there now the drop down menu falls behind the OBJECT.
Is there a way that I could remedy this....
I have a pic attached showing what I mean.
I'm gonna find a way to download the internet if its the last thing I do...
Prepare to bow down to me (or my grave) and call me almighty when the algorithm is finished
is it a shockwave banner or a flash banner? and its background is it completely constructed of an image? i know when i have had similar problems with my flash file i would set the parameter for wmode to transparent im not too sure how it will work with shockwave files
<param name="wmode" value="transparent">
doing that for flash will make the background transparent if its not constructed of an image which is y i ask if yours is made of an image and not just a single stripe and then the document color is white, u would also have to add wmode="transparent" to your embed tag or if u dont want to use transparency, u would add style="z-index:-1" or w/e it takes to get it to display below your menu, z-index refers to the layer the element is displayed on for example if i had an iframe and text over the iframe and the iframe had a z-index of 0 and the text had a z-index of 1 it would display over the iframe now if i had the iframe set to a z-index of 1 and the text set to a z-index of 0 the iframe would display over the text and u wont ever see the text unless the iframe is taken away or the z-indexes are change

can u upload ur .fla file in a zip file? u should know a lot about if u made it... if u read this post then u would know what wmode does http://www.codingforums.com/showthre...=Flash+z-index wmode="transparent" will do exactly as it says, it will make the document background transparent unless u have an image as your background
