We start off as before: insert a new Scene and use the Object Inspector to move this scene to the front of your movie (making it the first Scene). We want this scene to have 2 layers, so click the add layer button and name your two layers (from the top down) “Script” and “Visual”. Insert a keyframe in Script at frame 1, and another at frame 2 (select the frame and press F6). Extend Visual to be 2 frames long also (click in frame 2 and press F5).
Create a new movieClip symbol (Ctrl F:cool: and name is “bar”. Make this symbol 100 frames long (for ease) and insert 2 layers: Frame and Bar. In frame 1 of Bar, draw your loading bar using the square tool: mine’s a little gray box with a white outline. Now, select the outline (if you made one) and Cut it (Ctrl X). Select the Frame layer and Paste In Place (press Ctrl Shift V): this way your frame is on another layer and wont be tweened. Go back to the Bar layer and insert a keyframe at frame 100. Now at frame 1, zoom right in on your bar and use the select tool to cut off as much as you can while still keeping a little line there for the shape tween we’re about to make. You should now have a tiny line in frame 1 and the full bar in frame 100. Open up the Frame Inspector and set Tween to Shape tween. Now when you press Enter you should see your bar slowly filling up. Put a stop instance in frame 1 of the Frame layer so that this bar doesn’t just fill as soon as the movie starts. Now go back to your main stage and drag one copy of your bar movie clip symbol onto the stage at Frame 1 of the Visual layer. Use the instance inspector to name this symbol “bar”.
Now insert 4 Dynamic Text Fields in frame 1 of the Visual layer, (using the text tool and text inspector to set Type to Dynamic Text). Uncheck ‘Selectable’. name your fields as follows: total_bytes, loaded_bytes, remaining_bytes, percent_done .
Now we just need to ad the script and you’re ready! In the script below, you will have to adjust the ifFrameLoaded and gotoAndPlay actions to encompass the length and Scene names of your own SWF movie.
