On the sight www.jimsobama.com, I've set a test situation for which I'd love a solution. When I activate the dropdown menu, say to Search Test 5a4, the Flash movie disappears the dropdown. Does anyone know how to have a Fireworks dropdown positioned thus to a Flash movie where the dropdown is not distroyed by the movie?
This is a problem you run into using embedded content that overlapps dhtml: flash, java applets, form elements, etc. With Flash, you may be able to get better results by making the background transparent, using the wmode parameter.
For an <object> tag:
<param name="wmode" value="transparent">
For an <embed> tag
I was confused by reference to wmode at first but then tried out
different possibilities ending up with placed below
It works great as can be seen at www.jimsobama.com/Flash_trial_2/
