I have actually done a few small sites to experience and lean more. I found it easier to create symbols and have a stop on their first frame so they don't play. I hide them and put them out of stage since other symbols might have user interactivity.
Why do you put a stop in the symbols instead of checking off the autoplay?
Of course you could have several stop() in a symbol, but I was just wondering.
As you know I am new to Edge, but I have been coding mostly with action script for many many years. I assume the autoplay to stop would work but I like to code it myself if possible. I feel more in control choosing where the stop() or any other code is placed on the timeline.
Thanks for giving your opinion Ahoo !
I think I going to do that too. The problem is that I have many many images, and I don't want that the visitor to wait 1 hour before loading the web page haha.
So the main point is : Does anybody knows how to put a preloader to load one by one the Symbols.
For instance if I click on the second page :
sym.$("page_2").show(); // + preloader
Thanks a lot guys !
If you're concerned about your site being too heavy, you might want to consider separating them into different pages. The way our loading works, we will load everything in the project at the top and will begin playing when we think we're ready. If you want multiple preloaders, you should create each page as a separate Animate composition. If you do that, you will need to use the APIs in the advanced section in the API doc:
