    Get flash to go over text below it

    dotcom012
      I am trying to get a flash drop down menu to go over the text below it, the actual size of the button is 155w X 26h and it will show the button but when u put ur mouse over it it will not drop down the text, the actual size of the button and the submenus is about 155w X 266h but if u make the size of that in the HTML document, it shots everything out of range. any suggestions....t

      thanks

          you can't open flash beyond its boundaries. If the file is to expend to 266 pixels,
          the canvas has to be that big as well.
          What you can do is make the bg invisible so the flash simply looks like floating
          above the page while it actually run within its original size.

          check the post titles "Re: Need Your Help in Make use of Unused Area!"
          I show an example of something like that. Posted it yesterday.

              Hi there Scott
              I'm afraid using the Wmode and making the movie as big as the max open menu is the
              only way. It's in fact what all of us use for that purpose :)
