2 Flash movies on 1 page 1st movie playing on top.
I have 2 flash movies in AS3. The first movie is a menu that is wmode=transparent and overlaps on html and the flash banner below. I use a div tag/

Now I would like to interact with the Flash banner below the menu. Is this possible? So far I cannot interact with the 2nd flash movie below the menu.

Perhaps I have to use layers. Not sure.

Thoughts?
<body> <div id="flashcomponent1" style="position:absolute; overflow:hidden; left:0x; top:5px; width:731px; height:700px;" onmouseover="changeSize('flashcomponent1', 180);" onmouseout="changeSize('flashcomponent1', 20);"><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0" width="731" height="700">

you have two options...

External Interface and Javascript, or a better solution of using LocalConnection

here is a link to some External Interface help...

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Photos_Graphics/Web_Graphics/Macromedia_Flash/ActionScript/Q_24371711.html

and here is some info about LocalConnection, which is what I would recommend...

Nope not what I was after. I created a solution using div tag and javascript to dynamically resize the first MC so I can click on the 2nd MC under it.
