    Mootools Tooltip and sIFR

    Hey Guys,
    I'm using a mootools for tooltip and sIFR for titles in my website.
    the problem arises when a text that is required to have a tooltip is above the sIFR title, so the tooltip is under the flash elements.

    Now I know that flash elements are embedded into the document, and thus they are not effected by z-index what-so-ever.
    With that in mind, how can I overcome the obstacle?

    If an answer for that already been given on the forums, please link me to it, I couldn't find any suitable answer relating this subject.

    thanks

    You need to pass the Flash application a wmode parameter with a value of either transparent or opaque. Below is an example.

    Code:
    <object  data="flash.swf">
    	<param name="wmode" value="opaque">
    </object>

    For every complex problem, there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.
