External.Interface in IE when wmode is transparent

Hello there people I was wondering if there is a way to get the External.Interface.call functionality to work in Internet Explorer 7 when you have wmode set to transparent on the flash object in question?

I’ve tried pretty much everything under the sun I can think of without any success after a long time browsing the net for fixes. I should point out that I get the calls to work in chrome and firefox with identical code and that it also seems to work in ie if I dont have wmode set to transparent.

Essentially what I want to accomplish is to have a flash dropdown menu set to transparent so it can go down over html content without covering it and then using external.interface to resize the div the flash object is contained in when the mouse goes off or on the menu. In doing so making the html content accessable again when the mouse goes off the menu.

Any help would be appreciated.
