Using a Flash Nav
Doe's it run over the html select box?

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knew the answer to this before we spend time developing on the idea.
There is a known issue with the html select/combo box where it has an infinite z-index; this is because it is a windowed control/element (controlled by the browser and OS). JavaScript/DHTML navigations always default to display behind this element. Has anyone dealt with a Flash navigation object? Where we would replicate a scroll over the main titles and have a dropping down effect with the pages related to this display above the select/combo boxes.

Any experience on this matter is really appreciated.

Many thanks,

Yes I believe it does. Since it is embedded object it blankets the area. Everything I have seen is under a Flash movie.

Thanks korkus2000,

Well thatís my argument gone out the window, for some reason I thought it might have has the same effect as the DHTL menus etc.
