View Full Version : AnyLink Drop Down Menu and Flash

01-29-2008, 06:46 PM
1) Script Title: AnyLink Drop Down Menu

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...pmenuindex.htm (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/dropmenuindex.htm)

3) Problem:
I have the menu on a top nav bar but the page contents are flash and when you mouse over on the nav bar the menu does not show up because I am guessing it's either being cancelled out by the flash content or falling behind where you cannot see it.

Has anyone had this problem and found a solution?

Please I need help with this.

Found the solution to my own problem. I used the facts provided here (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26076&highlight=anylink+drop+flash). But here is the addition.

Step 1:
In your flash movie <object> tag insert this line
<param name="wmode" value="transparent">

Step 2:
In your <embed> tag insert this line wmode="transparent"

Step 3: (for Active Content)
The active content that places an outline around ActiveX and such in IE can be eliminated with the Active Content Script. That script in DW CS3 places a whole string of code starting with AC_FL_RunContent( and has variables like 'movie','height','src' etc. Add these to the string of code 'wmode','transparent'

I was searching for awhile until it dawned on me that the AC_FL_RunContent script had the same variables as the <object> and <embed> tags.

Kind of a simple situation that was really dumb of me to miss. But hopefully this saves someone all the searching I did.
