DHTML menu going behind flash animation in Opera

P: n/a
Hi

I have designed a simple DHTML menu which comes over a flash animation
when it appears. I have set the window mode as transparent in the flash
project. This menu is showing fine when seen with IE, Netscape,
Firefox. Yet in Opera the menu is going behind the flash animation.

Can anyone suggest a solution to solve this issue.

Thanks
Sura

best way is to never use flash ! :-(

or ... only for what there is any other choice
(i.e. an automatic demo -> sit and see)

I think Opera 8 (only on Win) supports wmode for Flash, earlier versions
not.
And as I understand wmode for Flash works only on the Windows platform,
whatever browser you use, so Firefox users on the Mac or on LINUX for
instance might still have the problem that the Flash movie sits on top
of your DHTML menu.
Thus on the web in general if you expect all kind of users with
different browsers and different versions of browsers on different
platforms you can't rely on CSS z-index stacking of normal HTML content
and Plugin content like Flash content, even if it works with a few
versions of browsers on some platforms.

You might try this IE IFrame/div shim trick
(http://dotnetjunkies.com/WebLog/jkin...0/30/2975.aspx) -
no guarantees that it will work for Opera though.

Good luck,

That's not entirely accurate. WMode works on other platforms (including
Mac OS X). But it is still limited in many ways - it only works in
Safari 1.2+ for example, and on most platforms flash player 6 (r65) is
required.

WMode info:

"DHTML Layers" info:

I've never tested this on Linux.

To answer your actual question - it does look like you are out of luck
with transparency on most versions of Opera - the latest version 8.02
does support the transparent mode though.
