Flash as a page background

Using 2 Layers you could easyly use a large animated gif as a page background. Works nicely.

I tried the same with a flash animation, but it always puts itself in front of my html page. Despite z-oder, before, after or whatever frame-subtags.

Is there any way to use a flash animation as a background for a "normal" html page?

Hiya holz,

I have the solution to your dilemma. Unfortunately it's not good.

ActiveX components, such as the Flash Player, cannot be driven beyond the topmost layer. They're stuck at the front so they will receive user-driven events. A couple of REALLY COOL effects would be for Flash to

a) be displayed in the bg, and
b) to be able to pass mouse clicks to the layer beneath.

However, ActiveX has not reached this stage yet.

I'm sorry, but you be out of luck.

-Dan
