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.

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

   <param name="wmode" value="transparent">
   <param name="allowscriptaccess" value="samedomain">
       <embed
          type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
          pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download

Hi Aris,

We have a flash image that now we are finding is covering the dropdown when you mouse over. What can I do to put the dropdown ON TOP OF the flash image? If it helps, the web address is {URL REMOVED}.
Please let me know what the solution is asap. I need to get this page up to replace the homepage.

Thanks
Cary

P.S. Just wanted to mention that I already have the z-index set to 1000.

I’ve been trying that, but it’s not quite fitting with the way my Flash has been coded in. Where would I place it? The code is brief for the flash and follows:

<td width="730" height=100 valign=top><embed src="/flash/entry13.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF  width=730 height=232 salign=L type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"></embed></td></tr><tr>

Where would I fit the code referred to in the link? I believe it’s ('wmode','Transparent') supposed to be in 3 places in the example.

Thanks much.

Cary

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Cary,

If you use the full flash code, then there are three distinct places where you can put “wmode”.

However you seem to use a much shorter version that only has the <embed> part. Hence, following the help example, you should add:

wmode="transparent"

wmode=transparent

So please correct the “ 'wmode', 'Transparent' ” that you added and instead use the correct code.

Hi Kostas,

I have one last request. I just need to space out the main menu options on top. What would you suggest to be the best way to do this?

Thanks
Cary

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Cary,

Actually I checked your menu again and I see that it is pretty wide already! It is so wide (although transparent) that it creates a horizontal scrollbar to your site:

menu is so wide that creates horizontal scrollbar

I assume that this happens because you set it to “Menubar” (so it takes the width of the page):

menu is set to menubar

My suggestion is that you remove the “Menubar” setting, and instead just give it the size you want using the “minimum width”:

minimum width of menu

Also, a final suggestion regarding your Positioning. First, find the following code in your page (where the Positioning Anchor is contained):

<td width=200 valign="middle">

<center><a href="/Products.asp?t=Products" class="redlink">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <img src="/demo/dotb.gif" border="0"><font face="arial" size="1" color="black"><span id='awmAnchor-conestmenu'>&nbsp;</span></a><b>PRODUCTS</b> &nbsp; &nbsp;</center></td>

And change it into this:

<td width=200 valign="middle" id='awmAnchor-conestmenu'>

<center><a href="/Products.asp?t=Products" class="redlink">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <img src="/demo/dotb.gif" border="0"><font face="arial" size="1" color="black"></a><b>PRODUCTS</b> &nbsp; &nbsp;</center></td>

So that the menu is attached to the <td>. Then go to the AllWebMenus Positioning and do something like this:

menu positioning settings

Of course you can adjust the offsets accordingly…

Good idea. I’ll see what it does. Also, why is the dropdown menu skewing off to the left? Is there any way to center it under the group choices?

Dear Cary,

Check these three properties for the submenu.

Is there any way that I can make the dropdown menus more responsive on the mouse over? There are times when it takes a few passes over the menu choice before the drop down appears. We can’t afford to have our customers play mouse games to access any menu features.

Thanks
Cary

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Cary,

I see that your submenus disappear too quickly and sometimes you have to be quick to move the mouse over them.

To fix this you need to put some delay on the “Disappears How” feature, and maybe also bring the submenus closer to the main menu items (they have a couple of pixels empty space between them.

Thanks. What would I change to bring the submenus closer?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Cary,

Try “appears where” (of which I sent a screenshot two mails ago).

Note: I strongly recommend that you take some time to skim through the different application properties.

This way you will have a general idea of what you can do and where to find it.

Initial Email Subject: I need some help again if possible.

Initial Email From: Anthony

Hello again.

I have an old website which I need some help with. I am in the process of making it iPhone friendly and in the process have made it Android unfriendly.

The YouTube video on the 'home' page is set to be transparent. This causes the menu to show up on top of the video. It works everywhere except on my Android (DroidX). And my client happens to have the same phone that I do.

So... my question is how can I get the menu to show up above the YouTube video on Androids also?

Sincerely,

-Anthony

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Anthony,

This is a known bug of the Android platform, or rather the Flash plugin for Android.

Unfortunately there is nothing that we can do to work around this, as the flash will ignore everything else and stay on top.

We have contacted both Google and Adobe regarding this issue but have yet to receive an answer. Hopefully they will correct this soon, but until then you may have to just avoid having things at the same space as flash objects.

Kostas
