I have a main movie with buttons that load external swf’s into the middle
The external swfs each with a tiny preloader at the start (only a few lines of actionscript), but when the button is pressed there is a long gap (5 - 10secs) before the preloader appears… All is fine when running the files locally on the hard drive but once they are on the server the pause appears because the swf has to load for a few seconds before it can appear.
To get round this problem i want a MC containing ‘loading’ text to appear when a button is pressed in the main movie and then for the loading MC to disappear once the movie has loaded into level 2.
I’m not very good at code, so this is like a pseudo code of what i mean:-
display loading movieclip (or maybe set to visible or something)
if aboutme.swf loaded
hide movieclip (set to not visible)
Or something along those lines, its hard to explain…
Could anyone help me out please with the actionscript i would put on the button to make this happen ?
Thankyou for any help!
