Hi Experts,

See attached screenshot, there is a flash element in a webpage and I added the wibiya toolbar.  The flash image seems to sit on top of the tool bar.  How can I fix this?

thanks,

HNM

I guess Partners in business is a single flash file embeded in page.
So this is a layer issue.
Try increasing the z-index of the div which holds the toolbar to be more than the z-index of the div with the flash object.

Also remember to avoid using wmode if at all not required in the embed tag as that often conflicts in such cases.

Warm Regards

Your best bet is to change the wmode to eather opaque or transparent on the param tag or embed tag depending on what method your using to add the swf to the page. By default this is window, which puts it above everything else on the page. You'll have a hard time getting z-index of the div to actually address this issue.

fixed it, I used swfObject to correct it and now works great in all three browsers.  There are some alignment problems that I'll post in a new question.  thanks!
