Menu overlay problem

Postby paul.mac » Wed Apr 01, 2009 7:47 pm


I have a problem with a EB&MM menu appearing behind a Flowplayer ( flash movie player


I've tried changing the z-index in both the EB&MM generated js file and the style setting for the ul that contains the drop down to 9999 but to no avail.

Any suggestions? I have a similar query psoted in the Flowplayer forum but no luck so far)

Does this happen with this particular player or with any flash media?

Generally, the object tag is used for embedding flash in pages. The object will have some param tags as well as possibly an embed tag if necessary. To fix this menu overlap problem you would then add the following param tag to the object:

<param name="wmode" value="opaque">

You would also add the following attribute to the embed tag:


That would fix the problem. However, this player uses a rather large and messy script to dynamically generate the object code within the browser, so the .js file itself needs to be modifed to create the needed tags and attributes.

If the developers can't update their code asap and you can't figure out how to modify it, I would suggest you go with a player that is embedded using more conventional methods.
