Flash over frames borders?
how to display flash over frame borders?

 11:09 am on Apr 1, 2004 (gmt 0)

I want to use flash in combination with frames. But sometimes I want a flash banner to extend over a frame border and be displayed in/over both frames.

How can I do that?

Ew, don't do it. Frames are nasty anyway.

If you must, I think you could make one of those really annoying 'floating' flash movies, where I think you need to save the movie with a transparent background. If you do a search on g for 'how to float flash movie' there are some tutorials out there.

Well, yeah, floating stuff, but it doesn't seem to work in other frames, I can start flash from one frame in the other but I can't get it to work across frame borders...

Hi. I don't think you can do that at all. As I understand it, you can't make anything go over frame borders, flash or not.

Well, it certainly seems so. Java can do it but not much else...

I'm not sure how you have it set up, but you could try this.

If you have one page that runs all of the frames, like an index.html of some sorts that defines all of the frame boarders and whatnot. You could try to put it on that main page and then use a <div> and css and align it on THAT page. Not actually in one of the documents that the frames themselves are loading.

An alternative would be, using iframes. Again, not sure if it would be handled the same way.

Not sure if that'd work or not, but you could give it a shot.

PS. Isn't this a javascript forum, not Flash/HTML ;-P .

Yes, it is Javascript, but I want to call up the flash with JavaScript (testing if user has flash installed and then displaying it, if he hasn't I'll give him a gif instead ;) )

So it's not about the flash but about how to call up the flash with javascript to make it work.

thanks for your suggestion, I'll try to make it work
