How to keep the chat window on top of flash content (1 post)

    When you embed flash content in your page, you should set the "wmode" parameter to either "opaque" or "transparent", if you want the content to be coexist nicely with other elements in the page. If you leave the flash element in the default "window" mode, the browser will render it in its own window, and thus, it will appear on top of any other page content.

    There are many tutorials on the internet about wmode and embedding flash objects, so I won't go into detail about that here.

    Below is a simple example of using wmode=transparent in an embedded youtube video:

    <object width="425" height="350">
      <param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/2_V-7g0LAZI"></param>
      <param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param>
      <embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/2_V-7g0LAZI"
        type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent"
        width="425" height="350">
