    preload an html

      hi everyone! i made a page in CSS with 3 frames in each frame a load a swf in total 3 the topmenu.swf, rightmenu.swf and content.swf ok everything works fine, i just want to make a progress bar that loads the entire page i mean the 3 swf but the best way for me would be that it can load the index.html file cause i want the 3 swf to appear at the same time when it finish loading. hope you guys can help me=) thank u!!

          you could make a preloader file that downloads your 3 swfs (into the user's cache). when that's complete you could open index.html (which i assume contains your frameset) with getURL() and the 3 swfs would appear to load quickly and simultaneously.

                hi thanks for the code =) but i can´t figure it out how to use it=( this is the code that i use for the preloader so please tell me what to do:

                myProgressBarListener = new Object();

                // When the progress bar is complete and has preloaded the loader component content, the listener will call and run this code below:
                myProgressBarListener = function (eventObject) {

                // Hide the progress bar now as we don’t need it any more
                myProgressBar._visible = false;

                // Closes the above function

                // Sets whether the content being loading into the loader component scales to fit the loader (true), or the loader scales to fit the content (false)
                myLoader.scaleContent = true;

                // Set the location of the content to be loaded. Examples are:
                myLoader.contentPath = "index.html"; //this is the problem=(

                // Declares a listener that detects when the progress bar component has loaded the loader component content and is complete. Then calls the function myProgressBarListener
                myProgressBar.addEventListener("complete", myProgressBarListener);

                // Set up the progress bar component variable to polled mode which determines the maths behind the % counter.
                myProgressBar.mode = "polled";

                // The location of the Loader Component
                myProgressBar.source = "myLoader";

                // Sets the conversion to 1. This basically means the component divides the current and total values loaded and to be loaded. Then it floors them (works out the difference between them) and displays the converted value in the label property
                myProgressBar.conversion = "1";

                // Set the label to display the word 'loading' followed by the percentage value loaded so far
                myProgressBar.label = "LOADING %3%%";

                // The direction the progress bar moves when loading
                myProgressBar.direction = "right";

                // The location of the label that displays the percentage loaded so far
                myProgressBar.labelPlacement = "bottom";

                // Stops the Playhead in the current frame until the Movie has been preloaded

                thanks for your time!
