how do I get my .swf file to show up behind a dhtml layer. I have tried iFrame and z-index and both don't work.
Anyone got anything on this - link, code, whatever?

To be honest, it's unlikely that anyone comes by this forum that doesn't come by the other one you asked in =)

afaik, objects or embeds (like flash) dont have such a thing like a z-index.
my tip: make the whole page in flash, then you dont need dhtml anymore.

I saw it done once to great effect in the concept car section of the VW site, but when I went back to check they've changed things. They used it to integrate quicktime movies. At that ppoint Flash couldn't display QT movies, so they set a dhtml layer with the movies in register with the Flash movie. Turned visibility on when you clicked a button in Flash. Very neat. Darn - wish it was still there.

Anyway - indications are that Flash and dHTML can work together, but I don't know enough about dHTML to tell you how. Don't give up!

It's likely that that worked only because it was a quicktime movie, which has an even higher preference than flash.

So, like, DHTML will always be behind Flash which will always be behind Quicktime. Probably.

put the .swf on a div, then set z-index for the div? i know you said you tried using z-index but did you try it that way? i'm pretty sure it'd work if you put it in a div and then set the z-index for the div

nope, doesnt work.
embeds/objects simply are "embedded" in the document. no matter where they stand.
