    blank page flashes between SWF pages

    liamfahy
      Hi all!

      I am building my first Flash website and have a small problem.

      I am building it using individual SWF files for each page. However, when I click a button to navigate from one page to another, I am getting a flashing blank screen for just a split second. What i mean is, it doesn't quite flow from one page into another - just for a split second, a blank screen appears.

      Anyone got any idea why this is and how to get rid of it???

      THANKS ALL!

      Liam

          Hi!

          This is probably because it takes a bit of time to load the files, and you
          destroy the previous page before the new page is loaded. So even if this is
          fast on your connection, a slower connection would maybe see an even longer
          "blink".
          What you need to do is do some kind of preloading of the page, and wait with
          exchanging the view of one page to the next until the new page is fully
          loaded. You can learn about preloading .swf files at:
