Not sure why there would be any problem in doing so. The Flash banner is on an html page which opens up in one window and the html popup will open up in a seperate window, right? One that you can grab and drag around etc. The only time there would be a conflict was if the popup was actually a part of the same page as the banner, in which case it would be a positioning issue addressed by the z-index of the elements involved.
But I'm thinking that you are using two windows, or am I missing something.
Here's an example of a popup over flash elements. http://www.olymarine.com/
Scroll down to the hydroplane races and "Click here to watch"
The main page contains a couple Flash elements. Popup appears over the top.
Thanks for your reply. I shud have been more clear. Both are in same HTML window, no seperate windows. There is a link in the dynamic footer which on click open that HTML pop up in same window...It's more like dropdown menu..I did try to use Z-index but didn't worked...
to solve the problem for time being I have convert the swf to gif banner...
We recently had some discussion about z-indexing Flash. FireFox seems not to like the normal z-index methods. What browser/s are you testing in?
Check the forum for recent posts about "dropdown menu not showing"...something like that.
There's a lot of discussion on the Web about z-indexing problems with Flash. Here's one that helped me understand:
Window Mode (wmode) - What's It For?
There are three window modes.
In windowless modes (like opaque), Flash Player doesn't have a hWnd. This means that the browser tells the Flash Player when and where to draw onto the browser's own rendering surface. The Flash movie is no longer being rendered on a higher level if you will. It's right there in the page with the rest of the page elements. The Flash buffer is simply drawn into whatever rectangle the browser says, with any Flash stage space not occupied by objects receiving the movie's background color.
I am also interested in this , but with a twist, I have a Flash intro which when a link is clicked on this (after loading) the flash intro page wipes off (in some effect) reveiling the Html page.
So if my intro had 3 links , depending on the link the flash would slowly slide off (maybe like opening curtains) to the page behind .
Does anybody know how to do this?
