force flash to play below dhtml menu?
I have a .swf files which runs next to a flyout menu. When the menu flies out, unfortunately it appears behind the flash movie, effectively ruining my navigation.
Is there a way to force the flash movie to play below the menu, or a way to declare the dhtml to load on top of everything else within the document, or will flash always play on top?
Transparent Flash in Firefox
I've been playing with some transparent Flash via WMODE and found that it works great in most Mac and Windows browsers except Firefox (0.9.x) on MacOS X. Although the transparency comes through, the Flash content is thrown to the bottom of the page. I wonder if this is due to a problem in Firefox or in my code. I would appreciate hearing the thoughts of you Flash Transparency experts out there.
Flash hides dhtml menu in firefox
I've tried everything and still flash hides the dhtml menu in firefox 1.1
It works great in ie but not in firefox.
I'm tried using the wmode opaque and transperent and using z-index but nothing works....I'm desperate.
Here's my simple solution
Here's how you can have a Flash animation play below a dhtml menu (I use OpenCube) in both IE and Firefox.
Step 1 Build your Flash animation with a transparent PNG (I use Photoshop to build mine)
Step 2 Insert this PNG graphic so that its the background image (layer 1) in your Flash animation.
Step 3 Publish the flash and insert it into your HTML page.
Step 4 Make sure you have these parameters set when inserting yoru animation in the html document.
<param name="quality" value="high">
<param name="embed" value="transparent">
THATS IT YOUR DONE! PROBLEM SOLVED
OH YEA, I just learned something today about this issue. Make sure there is no CSS pointing to the Flash animation in your HTML doc. CSS will thwart this solution in Firefox.
Have a great DAY and make some killer flash pages!
