Flash z-order — always on top?

July 1, 2009

I had a problem with a javascript pull-down menu that overlapped with a flash movie. The menu always appeared BEHIND the flash movie, regardless of the z-order. I solved it by: Adding the parameter <param name="wmode" value="transparent"> to the OBJECT tag. Adding the parameter wmode="transparent" to the EMBED tag. These parameters made the menu display correctly over the flash movie.
