 Javascript menu dropdowns - hidden behind flash (IE)

I have a container in a portal that is close to the header of the page.
I put a flash in there via the CMS admin system.

My problem was that the dropdown submenus (ADxMenu,js -generated by CCS4) would be hidden behind the flash.
I went to and downloaded the WHC.js file and put it in the js\menu folder of my project next to ADxMenu,js.

I then went to the HTML of my header and called WHS.js:

//Include User Scripts @1-724EBCBD
<script language="JavaScript" src="{page:pathToRoot}js/menu/WCH.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script language="JavaScript" src="{page:pathToRoot}js/menu/ADxMenu.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
//End Include User Scripts

Now the dropdown menu is in front of the flash like it is supposed to.
This only works in IE
Remember to make an atribution to the author if you use it! (Or you could pay to avoid it)

adding wmode="transparent" to <embed> tag of the flash object may also solve the problem

at least it works for my flash and CCT JS menus...

Yes that works nicely!
It works immediately with firefox and Opera, but I had to be particular with the placement in order to get it to work in IE7!
Nice tip - thanks.
(It will not work for the CCS Flash graphs though).
