    Preloaders in Form Application

      This is my first time using Form Application so please help
      I can't seem to get my preloader to work in a Flash Form Application. Are there any tricks to getting them to work properly?
      Basically all it does is flash the preload frame after everything is loaded.

          Here's an excerpt form the Flash help-files:

          About using preloaders with screen-based documents
          If you want to include a preloader (a separate SWF file that loads your primary SWF) with your screen-based document, one way to do this is to create the preloader as a separate SWF file (non-screen-based), and load the SWF file for the screen-based document from within the preloader SWF.

          You cannot create a preloader within a screen-based document, because all screens in a document are located on the first frame of the root Timeline, so you cannot call or load other frames

            I gave this a try but when the primary SWF loads it can only see the initial display and none of the buttons work.
            Are there any examples of using a preloader with screen based flash documents that anyone knows of that I can get a look at?
