Hi

My Drop down menu is displaying behind flash movie...why?; }

Do you know where I should put the wmode="transparent" code on my page to fix the flash/menu problem? I have tried several places in this section:

var flashvars = {portalEdition: "xml/to-eng.xml"};

var params = {};

var attributes = {};

attributes.id = "flashcontent";

swfobject.embedSWF("general_banner.swf", "flashcontent", "468", "166", "9.0.0", false, flashvars, params, attributes);

<param name="wmode"

<param name="wmode" value="transparent">

Unless you have compelling reason, e.g. a non-rectangular Flash, use "opaque" instead of "transparent"; it's less cpu intensive, thus quicker.

I am not a fan of SWFObject, but if you think you need to increase the complexity of your page ….

cheers,

An example I found is

<script type="text/javascript">
   var so = new SWFObject("movie.swf", "mymovie", "400", "100%", "8", "#336699");
   so.addParam("quality", "low");
   so.addParam("wmode", "transparent");
   so.addParam("salign", "t");
   so.write("flashcontent");
</script>
