View Full Version : image magnify / flash z order change?

06-15-2010, 03:08 PM
1) Script Title: jQuery Image Magnify

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/imagemagnify.htm

3) Describe problem: I have used the above on my site and all works well, however I have purchased a php availability calendar to go on the same pages as the above and when you click to enlarge the image the calendar remains on top of the magnified image.

I did write to the suppliers of the calendar about the problem and all I got back was that the calendar is a flash based app. and the javascript cannot change the z order. They then suggested changing the layout of the site as a fix, not helpful. I was just wondering if there was a way around this problem.

Apologies if this has been asked before, I did a search but could not find any answers. Any help much appreciated.

Do you have a link to the page ?

The calendar is not currently on the site though, I needed to remove it. It should sit in the blank space above the map. When you click the floor plan it comes up just lovely currently but when the calendar is in place the calendar shows "ontop" above the enlarged floor plan.

I hope you can get what I mean without the calendar, if need be I can put the calendar back up on the site, temporarily.

I understand what you mean and it's probably a matter of adjusting the z-index as you said. Without the calendar on the page it is difficult to know what would work. Put it on if you can ( temporarily)

Okay that was a tricky bug. Not about the z-index as I see it. Look at this

align="middle" height="209" width="250">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain">
<param name="movie"
<param name="quality" value="high">
<param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF">
<param name="wmode" value="transparent">
<embed id="calendar" src="akademia_files/calendar.swf" quality="high"
bgcolor="#FFFFFF" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain"
pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" align="middle" wmode="transparent"
height="209" width="250">
I added the paragraphs in red i hope that will fix it. You can try !

That is fantastic. Many thanks for this and also for being so speedy, did not expect that, great bonus:)

I just wonder why I could not get such service from the people I actually paid to get the calendar in the first place.:rolleyes:
