Flash and ASP.NET 2.0 double click issue (Click to activate control)

This issue only started once I upgraded my website from 1.1 to 2.0
It appears that Microsoft released a security fix and this caused it.

The following article will show you a workaround for this. Basically
you are writing the object tag to the page using document.write in a
javascript file. Then calling the script file from the page.

There is a free javascript library called swfobject.js that is available on google code that assists in fixing this and other issues with ie and flash.


If you have any additional tips, tricks etc that you would like me to post

Dropdowns over flash or other controls in IE

Below is a link to some code that may be helpful to you.
Basically the issue is that select controls overlap other
controls and divs regardless of z-order. The solution is
to hide all of them on a page when this issue arises and then
reshow them after you are done with the div or flash.
