WMODE Transparent to put HTML layer on top of Flash

Posted under » Flash on 13 March 2009

Flash will always put itself on top of any HTML layer. This could prove to be troublesome if you have a DHTML menu that will eventually overlap a flash movie that is playing close by near the menu.

The trick to show the DHTML on top of the flash is by putting the WMODE = Transparent tag.

This is how is should look like. Please note that it will appear at 3 different places or as needed.
