          in general, you can create a movieclip (with instance name progressBar) that contains a rectangle (with both stroke and fill) and its left edge at stage-center.

          right click on the fill, click convert to movieclip with its left edge at stage-center. give the fill an instance name (say fillMC).

          you can now control your progress bar by assigning progressBar.fill._xscale to equal thePageYourLoadingTarget.bytesLoaded()*100/bytesTotal().
