Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    Table Background

    Is there anyway of setting the background image of a table in a html file, not as a colour or an image, but a flash file?

    This seems like such a simple solution for a huge problem?

    cannot use flash in the bgrd yet....I think you have be able to float a div over it using the z-index values. The day you can use flash as bgrd images.....will be such a glorious day....

    Yeah like DDD said, have layers that you can set z-index values to with CSS.

    It will lag like hell though.

    Well, you don't really need the background property available for flash since you got layers.So 2 layers (or 3 to get a bit of transparency if you want) placed one over the other..and you're set. Smth like this:
    And it doesn't lag much if you keep the .swf in a decent size.
