    Loading external SWFs question

      I don’t like the blank screen whilst each new SWF loads. Is there a way to make the loaded SWF hang around until the next one is ready?

      Thanks in advance.

          Hi michaelfb.

          You can put a preloader at the start of the SWF you are loading, that way your screen isnt blank, the user can see something is actually happening and if you use your immagination you could even make a little game / interactive widget to keep them entertained whilst the new swf loads.

            Hi Barry,

            Thank you for your reply.

            I’ve seen some sites that keep the existing page loaded until the new one is ready – a preloader keeps the viewer informed that something is happening. Is this possible with external SWFs or is it a timeline technique?
