I am using the Progress Bar component to build a simple
preloader and noticed while simulating downloads at slower speeds
that it does not show up until the movie is about 95% loaded. I
have attached my code below... why does this occur? How can I get
it to pop up right away so that the user does not close down my
page? Thanks in advance.
I think it's because your source is _root, which includes the
actual progressbar itself....
try doing this...create a brand new movie clip and add in a
Loader component and make it the size of your stage (the stage of
your existing movie). Call this myLoader and make the contentPath =
the name of your original swf
Now drop on the Progress Bar calling it myProgressBar and
change the source to be myLoader and pop this code on the timeline
