    Suckerfish drop-down appears BEHIND flash header - HELP!

    Posted 11 years 3 months ago
    • I have almost finished on a site and have just dropped-in a flash header to replace the static one that was there. I have a suckerfish drop-down list coming from the menu above - this still works fine but only shows one item as the rest are hidden behind the flash header:

      BROKEN LINK REMOVED

      (not sure how long I can keep it up like this, so sorry if the flash has been removed)

      I've tried adjusting z-index for the header div and for the suckerfish, but it makes no difference.

      HELP!

    • Does anyone else ever find that 10 minutes after desperately posting on a forum they find the answer? I always do :)

      Anyway, here's what you do.

      For FF:
      WMODE="transparent"

      For IE6/7:
      <param value="transparent" name="wmode"

      ...both within the <object> tags. You need BOTH lines for it to work on FF and IE.

      Now all I need to do is get right of the "click to activate" but I won't bother posting, I'll probably find the answer straight away :D

    • Where you have the code for your flash object:

      <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase=" fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/....cab#version=8,0,0,0 " width="830" height="208" id="myflash" align="middle">
      <param name="wmode" value="transparent">
      <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
      <param name="movie" value="myflash.swf" />
      <param name="quality" value="high" />
      <param name="bgcolor" value="#c39ca1" />
      <embed src="myflash.swf"
      quality="high"
      bgcolor="#c39ca1"
      width="830"
      height="208"
      name="myflash"
      align="middle"
      allowScriptAccess="sameDomain"
      type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
      pluginspage=" www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer "
      wmode="transparent" />
      </object>

    • Hi Donna, that helped, but I still cannot see what actual file these object parameters are in. I am using a ajax header rotator, and it is a module, I see two files for it one is a .php and one is a .xml file. Neither of these have <object> anywhere in them. The .xml file does have some <param name> commands, but when I place the changes to this file nothing happens.
      Thanks!

    • Just out of curiosity, when you aplied the wmode fix in the flash config, did you have trouble with the flash not loading on firefox/mac ??? That's what I found anyway.

    • No idea, I don't have easy access to a Mac so for this dev I couldn't say.

      The client I did it for though was trying it on Macs and didn't report a problem at the time (and trust me, if it hadn't worked they'd have seen it).

      They actually opted to remove the flash header in the end because it was caning the CPU...so I can't even give a URL to try it out...

    • Andy, that fix isn't necessary for Safari. Just for PCs running IE or Firefox.
