    Preloader for external swf load

    goalpost95

      I have my main swf file and two external swf files i'm trying to load into the main one.  I have preloaders for each external swf file but when I have the main swf file it won't load the preloaders it seems to be loading the entire thing and then showing the swf.  How do i change that to showing the preloaders i already have?

       

      here is my code at the beginning on each external swf, I don't know that much about actionscript so any help would be greatly appreciated.

       

      stop();

      myBar._width=0;

      preloadI=setInterval(preloadF,100);

       

      function preloadF(){

       

      fractionLoaded = getBytesLoaded()/getBytesTotal();

      myBar._width = fractionLoaded*212;  // i'm not sure about that 408, but you can check that.

      myText = Math.round(fractionLoaded*100)+"%";

       

      if (getBytesLoaded() == getBytesTotal()) {

      clearInterval(preloadI);

      gotoAndPlay(3);

      }

       

      }

       

      here is the code to call and load the external swf

       

      myContainer.loadMovie("rambovid.swf");
