1) Script Title: HV Menu

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

3) Describe problem: I just found a menu script that I want to use on my site, and have it working, but the flyouts are going UNDER other objects (like a flash object). Is there a way to keep the menu and its flyouts to stay on top of everything else ?

I am not using frames, just a several layers with objects in them (JPGs, flash) nor do I want to use frames.

http://www.paulalfordphotography.com/index2.html is where the script is located. Not finished configuring yet... I want to make sure I can get it on top of other objects before I continue.

Thanks

Paul

Well, I don't see where your using the script on that page, but what you can do is give it some style. You'd wanna make your flash style:


z-index: 1;

And then add:


z-index: 2;

To the style of your menu, what this does is telling it layers, you can use a lot of different numbers and it'll all turn out how you want it to, you can also use like -1.
I hope this helps you,

Thanks Nile. I had 2 others tell me to:

Add the following parameter to the OBJECT tag:
<param name="wmode" value="transparent">

Add the following parameter to the EMBED tag:
wmode="transparent"

I did the above (I think correctly) and the menu now shows above the flash on my local preview here in DWeaver, but when I uploaded the new html page to the server, the menu is still under the flash object. You have any idea what to do now ? I dont get what you were saying about z numbers.

Alright, got it working correctly now. I have all of my pages updated to the new menu, but it sure takes a long time for the menu to load - and is last to come up....

Is there a way to get the menu to come up first, before it loads flash slideshows or pics ?

Thanks
