Hi, I'm using z-index to stack a couple of swf files want to change the stacking order from a rollover event in flash and coldfusion.  Is there a way to do that?

heres a simple script to change zindex
function Z(e1,e2) {
document.getElementById(e1).style.zIndex=101;
document.getElementById(e2).style.zIndex=102;
}
so on your event - send elements to the script
for ex. onmouseover="Z('e1','e2')" - the e1 & e2 would be the id's of the elements (swf's)
the higher zindex is on top

So I would place that function on the cfm page, correct?

Also, would I choose Flash Only or Flash FSCommand in Settings?
