Preloading External Images from loadVars


I am loading external text with the loadVars command. Within my external text, I am referencing images located in an images folder.

Currently when the page loads, there is a very noticable delay until the image loads. The text loads pretty quickly but the delay is on the images.

I need to figure out how to use the getBytesLoaded command with my loadVars command so that my external images display some sort of progress bar.

Any ideas???
