I have a flash menu (with animations) in a layer on top of several embedded iframes (with plain html AND flash). The buttons to initiate the animations work great but somehow the sub-menu buttons lose there clickability (this only happens when wmode is transparant!?). please check the example for a demonstration. Also, underlaying imagemaps and a hrefs are show but you can not click them? Important to know is that in the final frame of the flash-animation there is NO image of graphic covering the page (set to 0% alpha for example). I use a empty stage only with buttons on top. Please note the sit is in creation so it is full of other bugs and bad code...ignore it :) Thanks Robert Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.create flashmenu with transparant window mode on top of plain flash 2.play animation or whatever so that submenus appear OVER the html 3.Notice that submenubuttons dont work and underlaying html does not work Actual Results: -submenu buttons do not work (clickability gets lost) -underlaying html is not clickable Expected Results: Similar to Internet explorer it should have a great big rectangle over the different shapes in the submenu; wich are clickable. Also, the underlaying html- actions (a href etc.) should be clickable. Check the example: www.digilemma.nl/ellen/index.html

See Bug 102695 '[EVENTTARG]Treat some transparent elements as "transparent to events"' See Bug 102695 Comment 30 . There are probably other bugs that cover this issue. So far as I can tell, there is no standard that mandates certain behaviour in this situation, but it appears that the Mozilla team in the past has consistently said that event propogation is based on z-ordering and not opacity. If you think that the frontmost object is not receiving clicks, you may want to submit a shorter testcase. See Bug 133968 "Flash plugin and z-index bug" Bug 238668 "Flash animation always in front of dynamic layers"
@Ben Fowler: Note that the transparancy feature work great, no problem there! But when I turn the Wmode=transparant OFF the buttons in the submenu work just fine...somehow with the transparancy ON, the buttons simple dissapear! I think that counts as a bug. I dont know what you mean when you say there is no standard that mandates certain behaviour? Please explain it to me if you can be so kind... BUT, there is something else: when you click "grafisch" there will be a very random changing of the mouse when hovering above buttons like "websites" and "tijdschriften" (thus indicating a link). If you click very fast (several times) then the link WILL work but the target destination is wrong?! A different page is being loaded than I'm calling from within flash; wich I find very weird. Thanks for the comments guys Robert
(In reply to comment #3) > But when I turn the Wmode=transparant OFF the buttons in the submenu work just > fine...somehow with the transparancy ON, the buttons simple dissappear! I may be wrong, but when you set transparent OFF, aren't you just telling that swf to paint above everything else: Bug 93959 Comment 59 . > I dont know what you mean when you say there is no > standard that mandates certain behaviour? Please explain it to me if you can > be so kind... Bug 88866 "transparency and links inconsistency" Bug 102695 Comment 19 (and others) Bug 12232 "[EVENTTARG] events going to wrong element" If your problem is a duplicate of something already in bugzilla, it would be a better use of your time to read existing comments rather than try to get people to comment here.
"I may be wrong, but when you set transparent OFF, aren't you just telling that swf to paint above everything else" Offcouse this true concerning the html content underneath but the submenu buttons are on the top layer of the flash (swf). So I dont understand why Firefox is deleting them when transparancy is off. "If your problem is a duplicate of something already in bugzilla, it would be a better use of your time to read existing comments rather than try to get people to comment here." If have read a lot of comments here and found nothing relevant (imho) for this specific problem, excuse me for asking for comments jeez..thanks al lot Ben :(

I was working on the basis that one of your embedded iframes with flash was stealing your compositing pipeline and events. > If have read a lot of comments here and found nothing relevant (imho) > for this specific problem, excuse me for asking for comments jeez..thanks al > lot Ben :( If you are sure that you seeing something new, could I suggest that you provide a reduced testcase and very simple instructions for reproduction, including observed and expected behaviour. Make sure that there is one bug per report. Good luck!
The testcase in the URL bar works for me -- I can click the submenu things... Is this still an issue in a current trunk build?
