I want to have a nav menu that expands over a swf that keeps playing.

It seems that even when just laying a div overtop of a swf, the swf rises above the div when the swf starts moving. I tried using z-index of course. Is there anyway to fix this? Thanks.

hello...

very known issue and there are hacky fixes at best (the hacks aren't bad in this case - it's the flash dom layer issue that requires hacks to get around it)...

the cheap fix is wmode=transparent, but that can cause problems in some flash animations based on content - and it won't work for all browsers...

there are other tricks, but note that it will almost never work in safari on os x - you're kinda stuck there...but try googling up wmode and transparent or the parent issue can be seen here:

and the main macromedia doc on it:

hope that helps!

Thanks for the lightning fast response. I'm in the right direction now. wmode set to transparent does help alot. Safari is my browser of choice, too bad it sux for this :(
