We need to insert a flash OCX into our client app. One of the product's requirements is that the flash would be see-thorugh i.e. the main app window will be visible where the flash programmers define transparent areas. It would be prefrable if mouse clicks also 'went thorough' the transparent area into the app.

Regardless, we also need a means to communicate events (logical not windows based) bewteen the app and the flash. Is that possible?

I couldn't find an exact topic to put this question under. If there is a better place, please tell me.

Cheers,
Krip

To communicate between the app and flash u can use the action script supported by the flash.
Flash files supports the action script. Action script is for events such as mouse click and the keyboard.
