Hi.

why don't you just place the embedded swf into a div.
something like
Code:
<div class="navigation">
  <object class="banner" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"   
codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="975" height="300">
        <param name="movie" value="images/boys18.swf">
        <param name="quality" value="high">
        <param name="wmode" value="transparent">
        <embed src="images/boys18.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="975" wmode="transparent" height="300"></embed>

  </object>
</div>
Also you will need to style this navigation div with some css.
That will do the trick

Hi,

You do know how to make a basic HTML page right? You need to place your swf file(flash file)
into an HTML file.
Just thought of another way to do what you want. You could use frames.

Flash has built in menu's. You can simply use the flash menu functionality. Let me know if you want me to point you to an example of a FLA (flash file) that does that.

This functionality lets you tell flash the x and y coordinates where you want it to appear, top/bottom/middle, etc.

Anyone know if you can attach fla files in here or only post action script as text? (or url links for download from a server where you have access)
