    Flash white box on upload

    Hello everyone! I have made a flash drop-down menu for my website. It works fine online, but when the page is uploading, you can see a white box before the flash menu appears. Is there anyway I can change the color of this box to blend in with my background color? Or, is there anyway I can program my flash to only appear after it is uploaded (without the white box?)? Thanks!

    i believe that if you add the following attribute to the <embed> tag, then it will just show whatever background is behind it in the html document:
    Code:
    <embed src="file.swf" wmode="transparent" etc.,etc.>
    hope it helps

    know though that wmode is not supported in certain NN browsers. It will render with a BG color

    Thanks for your quick help! I actually figured out what the problem was and how to fix it. In Dreamweaver you can choose a background color for your flash object in the flash's properties bar. I can't see how I overlooked that! But, for those who might have the same problem.. that is how you fix it! So, everything works great now!
