I have a flash object with a movie that fills my form.  I can not move the form now because the flash activex control doesn't have a mouse down event.  Any ideas on how I can control of the form under the flash object in order to be able to move the form around?

Hi,

One way would be to make sure the Form always has focus and then capture the key events or mouse events.... or you can put an invisible panel at a higher Z buffer point.

Are you using VS.NET????

That sounds like a good idea.  I am using VS.NET.  I placed a panel on the form and docked it complete.  I set the background to transparent.  Don't see the flash movie anymore.  How do you make the panel invisible and make it a higher z buffer point?

First of all I am not a guru... but I thought I would try and help....

Can you give me some background into why you are doing this? and why you want to be able to move the form?
Because there may be other ways to do this easier....

Ps I think why mouse events are lost using Flash Active X is because the FLASH swallows those mouse events....
