Problem when hiding Objects

I have an object, Crystal Reports ActiveX Viewer which I hide with a mouseover.  The problem is if I don't click on the screen, anywhere except on the object, before I hide the object then when it reappears, the object no longer works anymore.  But if i click on the page somewhere outside the object it seems fine to be hidden/unhidden any ammount of times. Any help??

Sorry, the ActiveX doesn't work on my browser (I have IE4 on Windows NT without administrator profile). The object seems to load well, and there is no flickering. I have tested when your pull down the menus, the object hides automatically. Is this a problem?.

And ActiveX doesn't hides with a mouseover, or I am wrong?

Yeah I made a few changes.  I works as wanted.  I just restarted it aswell.  But when you do a mousover or click on hide, without clicking anywhere else on the page the activex goes all funny.  But if you click on a blank part on the top frame then hide, it all works well.  You will notice all the buttons go missing on the object.

Well, perhaps you need not to hide visibility (it is detecting all click because it has active region hidden). Try to set "display" property no "none". Difference is "display" not hides the object, deletes temporally the object representation (and disables events in it).

To try this, replace setVisible function in all cases with this:

function setVisible(elem, flag)
{
elem.style.display= flag ? '' : 'none';
}

Still lose it all.  Maybe it is a problem with the object.
Is there a way to simulate a mouse click??
