Has anyone ever produced these? I'm trying to get these to work on our company site. I have the flash actionscript set so it only expands on button click, not annoying mouseover... but it wipes out the screen under it when it's closed again.

They'd also like me to set it to close when a user clicks on the rest of the screen, any pointers there?

I haven't actually done this, so I could be way off, but try looking up WMODE in Google and see if it helps. It's more processor-intensive but I think it basically allows transparent backgrounds and rendering with the page.

As far as closing the ad on click-out, you can do it with the Flash/JavaScript-bridge, but it might be more trouble than it's worth. You'd basically check for something like document.onClick and then call a method you've exposed via the bridge and close the ad via the ActionScript.

Thanks. I found the Motif AdKit on DoubleClick, and it seems to take care of a lot of issues, they must have a lot of stuff under the hood. If you set the wmode to transparent in the flash export that helps as well. For tower ads that expand to the left, you have to have the html export of flash set to right flush.
