Menu disappears behind Flash

I have read through the list Help & Assistance questions regarding the issue of the menu disappearing behind Flash elements and did not find a solution that works.

My last attempt was as follows:

Code: Select all

<div id="layer1" name="layer1" class="layer" style="position:relative;">
<EMBED SRC="" PLUGINSPAGE="" width="533" height="150" quality=high bgcolor="#ffffff" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></EMBED>

Any suggestions?

Best regards,


It's pretty easy to fix

Here is the easiest way to fix your problem. In Flash, in your HTML Publish Settings make this selection:

Window Mode: Transparent Windowless

Then publish so that an HTML file is created.

Edit the HTML file and copy the embed code it created. Your menu will no longer get stuck below the flash.

Hallo MRperry...

This is another way to do the job... This will make the flashmovie transparent and the menu can be seen...

In your html file... do like this: Look at the lines including "param name"
Make a new line like this:

<param name="wmode" value="transparent">

And insert this line like in the code below... then flashmovie becomes transparent. It looks complicated but it's not.

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase=",0,0,0" width="300" height="40">
<param name=movie value="../flash/headline/billeder.swf">
<param name=quality value=high>
<param name="BGCOLOR" value="#FFFFFF">
<param name="SCALE" value="exactfit">
<param name="wmode" value="transparent">
<embed src="../flash/headline/billeder.swf" quality=high pluginspage="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="300" height="40" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" scale="exactfit">
</embed> </object>

Just a small problem ofcause!!! Netscape can't do this ;o( So *----* netscape...
