Menu behind flash in IE only ryan_b83 msg:3654641 5:09 pm on May 20, 2008 (gmt 0) I have also posted this in the CSS forum but it has become more of a flash related issue:
I have a drop down menu that used to appear behind a flash movie in every browser.
Once i added wmode="transparent" to the embed tag every browser except IE has placed the menu "over" the flash movie.
Any thoughts at getting IE to respond?

The script that was placing the flash into my page had a separate case for IE browsers using the newer <object> and <param> tags - i added a <param name="wmode" value="transparent" /> and IE now responds like the other browsers letting the menu overlap the flash.

Glad you got that sorted. Here's an Adobe page on it:
