    layering 1 swf over another

    Just a quick question: I am trying to layer 1 swf over another in an html file using css layers and absolute positioning.. However, no matter what i set my z index to, I cant seem to get the one on top to show up on top.. Can this be done? Please advise. Thanks in advance!

    This doesn't work in all browsers but if you set the background to opaque on your Flash some browsers will allow you to layer. The better way would be to just load the top SWF into the bottom one using LoadMovie

    I'm not that hard to imitate. Just make some random negative claim at Apple or anything else for that matter and then have nothing to back it up.

    THANKS JASONSPLACE! Setting the bg to opaque on the lower flash piece worked! I appreciate it!

    Like I said before though. That doesn't work in ever browser. I don't remember which ones had problems but I know that some did.
