I have a java menu on my site and I displau flash movies on some of the pages, my problem or question is,
Can i stop the flash movie floating over my menus?

when a dropdown java menu is displayed in the same place as a flash file it disapears behind it rather then floating over it?

is there anything that can be done about this or is it better to change to a different form of menu?

can't you use css to put the 2 objects on different layers?

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

Im not 100% sure what you mean by that, the java menu is fine until the drop menu opens and hapens to be in the same area as a flash file, I have noticed this on a number of other sites too.

Infact I have been looking all over and cant find a site that has the menu float over a flash file anywere.

Is it not posible?

flash file is a blug in file which means it'll always render on top of any html elements (same as the select menu in IE 6 and lower)

What you can do is to put the flash file into a div and hide it when the menu is visiable.
