Hi. This works in all browsers except IE just for a change. I have a css menu that displays on top of the flash in all other browsers but in IE it drops down behind the flash and you can't see it! Is there a way to fix that? Many thanks.

Make sure the menu elements have a z-index that is higher than the flash and in the flash set wmode to transparent.

This is the flash script I got online:

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/swfobject.js"></script>
		
		<script type="text/javascript">
// JAVASCRIPT VARS
			// cache buster
			var cacheBuster = "?t=" + Date.parse(new Date());		
			
			// stage dimensions
			var stageW = 571;//"100%";
			var stageH = 487;//"100%";
			
			
			// ATTRIBUTES
		    var attributes = {};
		    attributes.id = 'FlabellComponent';
		    attributes.name = attributes.id;
		    
			// PARAMS
			var params = {};
			params.bgcolor = "#ffffff";
			

		    /* FLASH VARS */
			var flashvars = {};				
			
			/// if commented / delete these lines, the component will take the stage dimensions defined 
			/// above in "JAVASCRIPT SECTIONS" section or those defined in the settings xml			
			flashvars.componentWidth = stageW;
			flashvars.componentHeight = stageH;
			
			/// path to the content folder(where the xml files, images or video are nested)
			/// if you want to use absolute paths(like "http://domain.com/images/....") then leave it empty("")
			flashvars.pathToFiles = "banner/";
			flashvars.xmlPath = "xml/banner.xml";
						
			
			/** EMBED THE SWF**/
			swfobject.embedSWF("preview.swf"+cacheBuster, attributes.id, stageW, stageH, "9.0.124", "js/expressInstall.swf", flashvars, params);

Open in new window


And the menu is contained in a DIV that makes no mention of z-index. Not sure if this info is helpful or not.

IshaanRawat, I haven't tried it because I don't know how? I don't know where to put the code in relation to the code I have.

COBOLdinosaur, your idea worked the best. I added :

params.wmode = "transparent";

and it now works!

Yeah that generally solves it about 99% of the time.
