Preload multiple

Hi all,
I’ve been searching for hours now but I haven’t found anything.

What I’m trying to do is get the total bytes of all the files I want to load and display the percentage loaded of total bytes and bytes loaded of all the files.

Its a slideshow so i want all the files loaded and then it will play.
I’ve looked at bulk-loader but it wasn’t what I needed.

The image are loaded from an xml file. I think I would need to create an Array and then find out the total bytes but I don’t know how to reference the loader in the progress.

here is the code:

private function loadImages():void {


            //Loop through the images in the xml file and then load them
            for (var i:int = 0; i < totalItems; i++) {

                //Create a new loader to every image.
                imageLoader = new Loader();
                //Load the images
                imageLoader.load(new URLRequest(xmlList*[email protected]));

                //Call fucntion imageLoading when images are being loaded
                imageLoader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(ProgressEvent.PROGRESS, imageLoading);
                // Call function imageLoaded when the images are loaded
                imageLoader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, imageLoaded);

            }//loop

        }//loadImages

        private function imageLoading(evt:ProgressEvent):void {
            
            // work out whay has been loaded
            totalLoaded = Math.round((evt.bytesLoaded / evt.bytesTotal) * 100);
            //add results of totalLoaded in to tPercent
            tPercent.text = totalLoaded + "%"+" " + Math.round((evt.bytesTotal))/1000;
            //x and y of tPercent
            tPercent.x = stage.stageWidth / 2 - tPercent.width/2;
            tPercent.y= 350;//stage.stageHeight / 2 - tPercent.height/2;
            //set text format
            tPercent.setTextFormat(tfPercent);
            //add tPercent to stage
            addChild(tPercent);
            
        }

If someone could just tell me the how it would work i should be able to figure it out.

thanks
