I have written away to the developer and he suggested the following fixes:
- When you export the Flash file in SWF format, there should be a setting called ‘windowless’, setting this to opaque should ensure the SWF movie goes underneath the sliding panel
- You could also try changing the param value to opaque in the HTML of the page, like this: <param name="wmode" value="opaque">
- You could maybe even try applying a z-index property to the Flash movie and another z-index of greater value to the sliding panel so it should sit on top of the SWF.
I have implemented these fixes but the problem remains. The sliding panel instead of overlaying the slideshow goes underneath it and cuts off the text. This of course is an IE problem but my client uses IE so I need to fix it or get rid of it.
I have used the param mode = transparent.
If anyone knows how to fix this or knows of an alternative I would really appreciate it, thanks. Need this fixed by tommorrow or have to come up with a new presentation. Thanks
