View Full Version : Chrome dropdown appearing behind google ad

04-02-2007, 02:41 PM
1) Script Title: Chrome dropdown (latest version)

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/chrome/index.htm

3) Describe problem:

I have made no modification to the script other than removing the gradient background to make it more neutral. On WINDOWS version of firefox, the dropdown goes behind the image ad. Any quick fix for this?

NOTE: Have fixed this for my own flash by using this fix:

You first need to add this parameter inside the Flash <object> tag:

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

You then need to add the attribute wmode to the embed tag:

<embed wmode="transparent" ...

it is working fine. Of course, we can't insert params into googles flash, so still no solution there.... and I'd still rather have the nav on the right..,

Looks fine to me in FF.

it's only looking good right now because I moved it. The fix I put in my post seems to work with flash objects. On iframed flash though, like google ads, its not going to help/.

That's right but, why fight with success? If the Google ads are polite and its Flash uses the wmode transparent attribute and parameter, you may be able to adjust your drop downs to a higher z-index. If it is only one set Google ad, this may work but, if they are random, there is no telling what wmode any given random ad may have and no way to change the wmode in an iframe from another domain unless you use a server side language. Even this last would be complicated and requires that your server have an appropriate server side language available (like PHP) and that it be configured to allow the import of external content as a local page (many servers with PHP do not allow this).
