I have created an online magazine via InDesign CS5.5.
I exported the InDesign file as an SWF with a html frame.
When the exported file loads in the web browser there is a looping loader icon. Is there a way to replace this loader icon with an icon that shows the user the progress of the loading magazine?
Like a progress Bar?
Without Flash ActionScript3 coding skills answer is no.
Another option is to use 3rd party tools. eDocker does that, and you can even change the animation if you like...
Check the sample, magazine is exported from indesign and finalized with eDocker
Here´s another one where animation has been changed to match company´s graphic guidelines:

Thank you for your reply.
I designed a progress bar and UILoader in flash. I have the magazine I created in InDesign and exported as a .swf directed to the UILoader.
All works fine.
The next step is to direct the html container (created in Indesign) to the .swf that I made in flash.
