I have a container movie that loads external SWF movies into itself using the “LoadMovieNum” action.
Rather than having multiple preloaders (one for each loaded SWF file) I would like to create one that can be used for all of the SWFs that need to be loaded upon request.
In essence this is what I would like to happen…
In the Parent container movie there are several buttons, each is associated with a different SWF child movie that needs to be loaded into the container movie. When user clicks a button I would like a preloader animation to start, and depending on which button the user chose is which external SWF movie the preloader will chose to load in the background, once the external SWF movie is completely loaded, then the preloader will finish.
It should be noted that the child SWF files have to maintain their ability to be played independently as well – for they will be used in other locations on the website.
I realize this is an extremely tall order; any help would be tremendously appreciated.
