View Full Version : Pop up menu help

08-31-2005, 11:30 AM
Hi i hope someone can help or give me any tips on this ect.

The problem is that i have used the pop up menu behavior to create pop up menus on some of the images in my nav bar and they work fine, however i have now added some flash stuff to the site and the pop up menus go behind them when i want them to go over the top like they do with other pictures on the site.

I hope someone can help i need to have the site finished by the end of the week lol. :unsure:

Flash content has infinite z-index, so you can't place anything above it.

just add this line to your flash code. it is simple. tis code will cause the flash to be transparent and will allow the menu to appear over the top of the flash.

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

Example of the code in dreamweaver.

<td width="89%"><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="468" height="60">
<param name="movie" value="flash/banner.swf">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<param name="wmode" value="transparent"> <----- this line is added to the flash code.

this should solve your problem.
