a form that contains controls with the same names as the corresponding controls on the form page.

- window: The Flash form is the topmost layer on the
page and obscures anything that would share the
space, such as drop-down dynamic HTML lists.
- transparent: The Flash form honors the z-index of
dhtml so you can float items above it. If the Flash
form is above any item, transparent regions in the
form show the content that is below it.
- opaque: The Flash form honors the z-index of
dhtml so you can float items above it. If the Flash
form is above any item, it blocks any content that is
below it.
Default is: window.
