Video: Creating a Pushdown Banner from Template

You can create a PushDown Banner ad when you want to create an ad with a banner and a panel that expands after user initiation (mouse over) or automatically. The panel expands outside of the banner and pushes the content of the webpage downwards.

The PushDown Banner ad contains at least three elements: a default GIF image, a Flash banner, and at least one panel (the push down Flash file).
