1) Script Title:
All Levels Navigational Menu (v2.2)

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

3) Describe problem:
I have implemented this successfully on my site, however each time I hover over a menu item to display the sub menus, the flash banner I have running on the site disappears. As soon as I stop hovering over any menu item that has sub menus the banner reappears again. Is there any way to stop this?

Thanks,
Pete

This is due to the "enableshim" feature of the script being turned on inside the .js file:


enableshim: true, //enable IFRAME shim to prevent drop down menus from being hidden below SELECT or FLASH elements? (tip: disable if not in use, for efficiency)

Its purpose is to prevent the drop down menus from being obscured by the Flash object when the two comes in contact with one another; to do this the script temporarily hides the later onMouseover. If this behavior doesn't work for you, you can try disabling the enableshim option above and insert the below attribute inside your Flash object instead:


wmode="transparent"
