I have a problem where my javascript menu is being covered up by my flash animation. Is there a way to make layers appear infront of a flash presentation?

Thanks!

Common problem this - add

<param name="wmode" value="transparent">

insode the OBJECT tag, and

wmode="transparent"

inside the EMBED tag.

The problem is caused by Flash being independant of z-index layers, and it always appears on top - unless wmode is used.

You can also try wmode of "opaque", which also should work

Here is an example with the tags included - it will differ slightly to your own version, but should give an idea how the HTML should look:

<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" WIDTH="1024" HEIGHT="356" ALIGN="">
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="jet.swf">
<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
<PARAM NAME=wmode VALUE=transparent>
<PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF>
<param name="LOOP" value="false">
<EMBED src="jet.swf" WIDTH="1024" HEIGHT="356" loop="false" ALIGN="" quality=high wmode=transparent bgcolor=#FFFFFF TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">
</EMBED>
</OBJECT>
