Hey Guys

I have out a script from dynamic drive website, the script makes it so when you put your cursor on top of a text a popup message appears along with a picture, if theres a flash content or banner near it it goes behind the flash banner making it not able to read it, is there a way that I could make it so if theres flash it appears on top of it?

Heres what the script looks like (sample of the beginning code)

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">

/* IMPORTANT: Put script after tooltip div or
put tooltip div just before </BODY>. */

var dom = (document.getElementById) ? true : false;
var ns5 = ((navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Gecko")>-1) && dom) ? true: false;
var ie5 = ((navigator.userAgent.indexOf("MSIE")>-1) && dom) ? true : false;
var ns4 = (document.layers && !dom) ? true : false;
var ie4 = (document.all && !dom) ? true : false;
var nodyn = (!ns5 && !ns4 && !ie4 && !ie5) ? true : false;

// resize fix for ns4
var origWidth, origHeight;
if (ns4) {
origWidth = window.innerWidth; origHeight = window.innerHeight;
window.onresize = function() { if (window.innerWidth != origWidth || window.innerHeight != origHeight) history.go(0); }

// avoid error of passing event object in older browsers
if (nodyn) { event = "nope" }

thank you, problem solve :) another thing is, the script appears nicely on top of the flash content but it appears behind a form menu. Can it appear on top of a form.

Seems as if you used the transparency for your flash problem. To fix your form problem, follow the links which are contained in the link(s) Glenn provided. What you are looking for is the IFRAME workaround.....
