Hello everybody! i'm not sure this is wrote the subject correctly : ) i did not know what to call it anyway

all i want is to know how to make the items in flash that are outside the stage apear in my html page!
for instance i have a menu that has a height of 100 pixel
so when someone roll the mouse over an item a sub menu will show up but since my flash object is only 100 pixel height the sub menu wont show up!
i'v seen this a lot on the web but could not implement it.
thanks in advance

No one has an answer? :-)

My initial reaction is, you can't, at least, to my knowledge. The stage is all the SWF is aware of.

You can, however, communicate between the page and your SWF using Javascript, moving the Flash object as required.

Honestly, I've never tried it - what happens when you assign coordinates outside the stage area to a symbol?

yea i might be able to do that by changing the swf object width and hight and if i'm floating it over other elements this wont hurt my style but i thought there should be a better way to do this

i can call js function from inside the flash that changes the width and height attributes for the object and in the same time it changes the stage width and height within the flash but i dont know why i dont feel good about this maybe cos it sounds lots of work! i thought there would be a workaround : )
