View Full Version : yellow box is not seen when the link is next to a flash movie

I've read and tested the code in the above URL.

It works fine and it is cool.

But As I test it more, I meet a problem.

when I put my mouse on a link, it is supposed to show text inside a yellow box.

But if a flash movie which is formatted as SWF is next to the link,
the yellow box goes under the flash movie.
So the flash movie hide the yellow box.

How can I make the yellow box go over the flash movie to be shown?

I hear this is a common problem with no certain solution. In this case I would try:
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
width="268" height="110" id="banner" align="middle" style="z-index:0">no promises.

Thanks for your suggestion.

unfortunately, my trial with your suggestion seems not to work.
You can see the result of the trial through the below link.


I sigh...

I think I have to design my test site again for moving the flash movie to another place or chainging the flash movie into GIF image.

dhtmltooltip or flash movie... that is the question.

I just tried putting the flash in an iframe, no luck. As I said, I've heard about this problem. I've even seen it in action. The only way to get content to go over a flash object that I know of is to have it be part of the flash object. An example of this can be seen in the drop down menus at:


Your ideas about moving the movie or using a graphic instead of flash are both good.

See my comments (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showpost.php?p=7200&postcount=6) (near end of post) on this problem. As jscheuer1 said, there is no sure solution (as I also mention in that post), only a partial one.
