Flash Heed ***09/12/11***

Flash Heed
We’ve all had it, we put some flash on a page, add other content to the page, and on viewing the flash has taken z-order priority, yes there it is sitting on top of all you other content.
Well no more this little extension it will allow you to add flash to any page with any content, and it will not take priority any more. It works reliably in all major browsers, and has no dependencies, so feel free to drop it into your Prototype or jQuery dependent website.

So just to your page and you’re done. All the flash on the page will now heed to the z-index ordering. No more embarrassing lightbox and dropdown menu occlusions.

Under the hood, FlashHeed injects the correct wmode parameter and actually forces the flash to re-render. This is the only reliable way that I’ve found to kick the flash into the correct wmode

Note that FlashHeed will not work on flash or elements that are embedded inside iframes, due to cross domain policies. Unfortunately, there is not a solution for those.

Built with Extension Builder 2.6.0
Extension is available for Registerd Members of WB7 and WB 8 you can download from the Extension Manager under Miscellaneous or by visiting the following and enter your serial
