View Full Version : Pop-up over Flash movie

03-18-2005, 12:35 PM
Is it possible for a pop-up menu to open over a Flash movie?

Immediately to the left of a Flash movie, I have a nav bar with pop-ups. The pop-ups should open to the right of the buttons i.e. over the left-hand side of the Flash movie.
At present they are behind the movie.

I have tried creating the page with layers and moving the nav bar to the front, but the pop-ups are still behind.

Any ideas?

The only way to do this, and I'm not sure it even works cross-browser, is to set the wmode of your flash movie to transparent. That mean one extra parameter tag and another attribute in your embed tag:
<param name="wmode" value="transparent">
<embed src="movie.swf" quality="autohigh" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" wmode="transparent" width="550" height="400"></embed>

Thanks anyway, but decided to change the layout of the page after reading in "Fireworks 4 Expert Edge" that pop-ups will not work over any active media.

Thought it best not to take a chance.
