Hey all! Any help would be greatly appreciated. In all
honesty, I have searched and studied and worked to get this myself,
which I do alot with code, etc. BUT I am going to admit I'm a "make
it pretty on the outside" kind of guy, and coding makes my eyeballs
fall out and well, honestly, I just don't get it. My brain can not
wrap itself around this. Sigh! So I could use your help a little.
This is what I'm wanting to do. I have a website,
www.luxeillustrato.com, and if you go to the portfolio area, and
click on any of the sections (take fine art for example); it will
showcase my works by loading external jpg files each time you click
the forward arrow button.
You can see I have preloaders on the site, that work fine. My
main page has a movie target with the instance name of photoM. You
click "artist", and it loads a new swf file into the photoM target.
IF you click on "portfolio", "fine art", it loads the fine art swf
file into photoM, using a preloader. THEN, if you click on the
forward arrow button, a new jpg image of my work is loaded into the
fine art movie target with the instance name of just
photo. As you can see, you have to wait until the jpg image
loads (and you start to wonder if it's doing anything.)
The problem is, it is not preloading the external jpgs, it's
just preloading the fine art swf. My preload code is currently:
I already have the preload animation bar created (as you can
see on the site.) What do I need to do to alter the code above (or
replace it) in order to have the external jpgs be preloaded as
well? For example's sake, let's just say I have four jpgs, titled
"door.jpg", "orange.jpg", "boyfriend.jpg", and "untitled.jpg" (in
case these are needed for the code. They may not be.)
I hope this is easy to understand. If NOT, just tell me. I'll
simplify. And seriously, thanks!
