Busy like hell these days with a inhouse project for my firm.
working on HTML / CSS as well as graphing / charting for the project.
the toolset i am using
and i found one error.
while the default samples provided at open flash chart website work fatastically when working alone but have a piculiar to flash problem while working with jquery specially facebox.
when a facebox method is called it goes in the backround while the flash remains in the foreground. no matter what z-index game you try but flash always remain on top of facebox.
A bit of googling yielded http://joelg.info/problem-with-flash-appearing-on-top-of-facebo
but this talked about adding a parameter in flash embed object code in HTML
to be added in the function calling. where X is the SWFobject.
Hope this helps someone else finding solution a bit easily.
Note : tested on Firefox 3.5 and IE 6.0

Great hint! This saved me hours 🙂
If you are using openflashchart with symfony, you have to add the following line to the function _ofc in open_flash_chart_object.php:
$out = ‘so.addParam(“wmode”, “transparent”);’;
…and embed the chart with true for $use_swfobject e.g.
stOfc::createChart(700, 300, ‘module/action’, true);
Top-notch informations it is definitely. My friend has been looking for this info. Thank you;)
