Drop down menu woes

Recommended Posts

I have just tested a local site on my virtual machine and my drop down menus are not displaying over a flash file which is situated just below the menu in any of the browsers on the PC side.


It all works fine on the Mac in all the browsers, just not on the PC side. The z-index is 100 so it should be showing. Have any of you had this type of issue before?

In case any of you are interested, I found the solution to my problem.


Apparently all Active content on a page will always rise to the top, so to speak, including Flash, certain form elements, Java applets, and Active X controls. This means that each of these will poke through layers, and ignore the z-index of other elements. The solution is to use WMode in Flash as explained in the following article




Wow, I learn something everyday...
