    Is it possible to place an ap div element on top of a flash movie?

    Fredy119 Level 1
      Hi
      I imported a photoshop web gallery flash style 2 into a table cell.
      The code lokks like this:
      <td height="530" valign="top" class="style3"><div id="gallery" style="display:none">

      <div>%FLASH%</div>



      <div>BLA BLA Photo Gallery</div>

      <div></div>

      <div>19.01.2008</div>

      <div></div>

      <div></div>



      <div>#666666</div>

      <div>#8F9863</div>

      <div>#000000</div>

      <div>#0000FF</div>

      <div>#800080</div>

      <div>#FF0000</div>



      <div>.jpg</div>

      <div></div>

      <div></div>

      <div></div>

      <div></div>

      </div>



      <div id="flashcontent">

      <script type="text/javascript">

      // <![CDATA[



      var myFlashObject = new FlashObject("gallery.swf", "gallery", "100%", "100%", 6, "#666666");

      myFlashObject.addParam("scale", "noscale");

      myFlashObject.addVariable("request", getQueryParamValue("image"));

      myFlashObject.addVariable("photosXmlFile", "photos.xml");

      myFlashObject.addVariable("configXmlFile", "galleryconfig.xml");

      myFlashObject.write();



      // ]]>

      </script>

      </div>

      Now this leaves a lot of space in the cell to display additional information about the gallery or further navigation etc.
      So I thought to place an ap div element to do that. But the content of the ap div element doesn't show in the browser, it seems to be somewhere behind the flash content. I tried Z- Index, but this doesn't help.
      Any ideas?
      Thank you

          Not possible, I'm afraid. Active content - like Flash - always rises to =
          the top above any other div tags, AP or otherwise, regardless of the =
          z-index.
