Keep Flash Behind Other Elements

For example, a dropdown menu going “behind” a flash movie, or staying on top of a lightbox layover.

Try This #1

Add this to the Flash embed code:

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

Try This #2

Make sure the element that is supposed to be on top has positioning (fixed, relative, or absolute) and a z-index value higher than the Flash object.
