I know I have seen this before, but I can’t find it in your knowledge base?
How do I get the dropdown menu to be in front of my scrolling banner images?
Now they are behind it when you click the navigation button.

Thanks,
Pat

Dear Pat,

You have to add the “wmode=transparent” parameter to your flash applet.

For detailed instructions, please have a look here:

I'm sure you can tell me how to fix this:

In all browsers except Google Chrome, the dropdown is displaying correctly.  In Chrome, it's behind the Flash.  What do I need to do to fix that?

Thanks so much.

Hello,

To make submenus appear *in front* of Flash Objects, Java Applets or Select Boxes, open the "Z-Index" property and click the "Click here" link:

main menu z-index property

This will open a help topic where you get instructions on what to do in your page.

If you still have a problem after following these instructions, please send me the URL to see what you have done.

The value is currently set to 1000 and works in all other browsers.  Does it need to be higher than that?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

I believe there is a misunderstanding. My point was that you need to click the “Click here” link, in order to read the instructions.

This issue is caused by the flash object and you will need to add specific code in your page in order to fix this (it cannot be resolved from the application alone).

It doesn't just happen in IE. I found that if you click anywhere off the menu bar and then move your mouse over the "Other Services" button, it does not drop down.

Thanks,

Dear Steve,

The submenu does not show in IE (ever) because it is hidden behind the Flash applet. To correct this issue you need to add the “wmode=transparent” parameter to the Flash applet.

Specifically you need to change the following code in your page:

<script type="text/javascript">

         AC_FL_RunContent('codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub
         /shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0','width','970',
         'height','252','title','ProClean Carpet and Upholstery', 'src',
         'flash/main', 'quality','high','pluginspage',
         'http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi? 
         P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash','movie','flash/main' ); //end AC code

</script>

<noscript>
     <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"        
             codebase="
http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave
             /cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0
" width="970"
             height="252" title="ProClean Carpet and Upholstery">
            
<param name="movie" value="flash/main.swf" />
             <param name="quality" value="high" />
             <embed src="flash/main.swf" quality="high"    
             pluginspage="
http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?
             P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash
"
             type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="970"    
             height="252"></embed>
      </object>
</noscript>

With this:

<script type="text/javascript">

         AC_FL_RunContent('codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub
         /shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0','width','970',
         'height','252','title','ProClean Carpet and Upholstery', 'src',
         'flash/main', 'quality','high',
'wmode','transparent','pluginspage',
         'http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi? 
         P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash','movie','flash/main' ); //end AC code

</script>

<noscript>
     <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"        
             codebase="
http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave
             /cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0
" width="970"
             height="252" title="ProClean Carpet and Upholstery">
             <param name="movie" value="flash/main.swf" />
             <param name="quality" value="high" />
            
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
             <embed src="flash/main.swf" quality="high"    
             pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?
             P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash
"
             type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
wmode="transparent" 
             width="970" height="252"></embed>
      </object>
</noscript>

(note the change is in three places marked in red)

Kostas,

Awesome work dude!

I really appreciate it.

I had a sneaky suspicion that it might have something to do with the Flash.

We don't usually use Flash because it doesn't work on the iPhone or iPad.

Thank you,

Steve

Initial Email Subject: Pre-purchase question: Integration with Flex 4?
Support Case Month: September 2012

Hi:

I am very interested in your AllWebMenus Pro product, but need to know if I am able to create the following menu as a Flex/Flash widget (SWF file). If so, do you have instructions how to do so in your Knowledgebase once I buy the product?

Your prompt response is much appreciated since I need to build this for a client this weekend.

Thanks,

Michael

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Michael,

I am afraid that AllWebMenus does not produce flash files. We only have JavaScript-based products.

Is there a specific reason why you would want this to be a flash applet? I am asking as I can only think of cons and no pros in this.

(Flash is not supported everywhere, it requires plugins to be installed into the browser, it is heavier, it is going to be dropped altogether by Apple & Google etc)

So, I use flash widgets to integrate with a BI tool called microstrategy. I am kind of stuck until they support HTML5. I am able to setup an HTML container. Basically  this is to create a selector for a dashboard versus a menu for a web page. If the example generates JavaScript or Actionscript, I can include your library to create the widget, and then use the code in the CDATA part of the Script tag. I welcome your thoughts.

Michael

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Michael,

I am afraid I am not aware of “microstrategy” at all. Still, our tools generate JavaScript and HTML, so it sounds as it will not be a problem.

The minimum requirements for AllWebMenus to work is that:

1) you are able to directly insert a HTML snippet in your page (the so-called “Linking Code”)

2) you are able to directly upload files to your server (preferably with FTP access)

Are these requirements met by your system? If so, then there should not be a problem.

Here is an example of the HTML code (“Linking Code”) you will need to insert in your page:

<!-- ******** BEGIN ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR menu ******** -->
<script type='text/javascript'>
      var MenuLinkedBy='AllWebMenus [2]', awmBN='GN';
      awmAltUrl='';
</script>
<script src='/menu.js' language='JavaScript1.2' type='text/javascript'>
</script>
<script type='text/javascript'>awmBuildMenu();</script>

<!-- ******** END ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR menu ******** -->

Carole
Initial Email Subject: positioning the modal
Support Case Month: October 2012

hello,

The home page includes a .swf animation, but ,when I open the modal window,   the .swf is always in front of this modal.

z-index for the modal doesn't work in this case ...

So can you give me any help to put the animation behind the modal ?

Thank you.

Carole Bourdon

Dear Carole,

Indeed the flash applets ignore the z-index and always stay “on top”. The solution is to add the “wmode=transparent” parameter into your flash applet.

Please try changing this:

<object 
classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
   codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash
/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0
"
width="710" height="550" >
   <param name="movie" value="galerie.swf">
   <param name="quality" value="high">
   <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="samedomain">
      <embed
          type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
          pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download
/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash
"
name="creoliles"
width="420" height="290"
          src="galerie.swf"
          quality="high"
          allowscriptaccess="samedomain">
      </embed>
</object>

Into this:

<object
   classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
   codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash
/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0
"
   width="710" height="550" >
   <param name="movie" value="galerie.swf">
   <param name="quality" value="high">
   <param name="wmode" value="transparent">
   <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="samedomain">
       <embed
          type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
          pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download
/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash
"
          name="creoliles"
          wmode="transparent"
          width="420" height="290"
          src="galerie.swf"
          quality="high"
          allowscriptaccess="samedomain">
        </embed>
</object>
