This is in regards to our out-of-the-box player selection for one of our magazines...
we are using a compact tabbed navigation template.
there is a 300x250 companion ad that goes along with the pre-roll.
we want to be able to give the user the option to close the companion ad & broswe the playlist while the pre-roll is playing.
Anyone have any ideas? is there a command to invoke?

Hi Ted, we have no built-in functionality to show a close button on a ExpandingBanner companion ad when a video/overlay ad is showing. But we do have a contract() API for the ExpandingBanner component:
I've never used this function before, but I assume you could call this when the main ad is playing. Then you would need to create your own close button, perhaps with a custom player component:
The only thing I'm not sure about in this approach is whether the close button in a custom player component could actually be shown over the ad (as it may always display below the ad in the display). If that looks like it's happening, I can try to provide some alternatives for displaying a custom close button.
