Hello, I have just a simple Flash MX 2004 Preloader file where I have a graphic and dynamic text telling the user the status of the download, I want the dynamic text to float ontop of the graphic as the graphic loads (graphic fills the screen and moves up) here is the actionscript I am using for the file:
<snip>

bytes_loaded = Math.round(getBytesLoaded());
bytes_total = Math.round(getBytesTotal());
getPercent = bytes_loaded/bytes_total;
_root.loadBar._height = getPercent*100;
_root.loadTextMC.loadText = Math.round(getPercent*100)+"%....Loaded";
_root.loadTextMC._y = _root.loadBar._height
if (bytes_loaded == bytes_total) {
     _root.gotoAndPlay(3);
}
</snip>

 or you can dl the .fla from http://www.rememberrainier.com/vote/PreLoaderSSV3.fla

Any direction or help would be appreciated, all I want is the dynamic text to move up with the loader bar.

Is this kinda what you are after?

bytes_loaded = Math.round(getBytesLoaded());
bytes_total = Math.round(getBytesTotal());
getPercent = bytes_loaded/bytes_total;
_root.loadBar._yscale = getPercent*100;
_root.loadTextMC.loadText = Math.round(getPercent*100)+"%....Loaded";
_root.loadTextMC._y = _root.loadBar._y - _root.loadBar._height-20;
if (bytes_loaded == bytes_total) {
      //_root.gotoAndPlay(3);
}

Yes it's exactly what I am looking for, you get the points, one quick question though, if you notice on the file, the dynmic text movement is chopy, is there a way to make it seem more fluid? Sorry for the lame questions I am pretty new to flash.

You can change the frame rate (I usually use 25fps) - Modify -> Document....

Also, just for your interest, you can do the same with just 2 frames (frame 2 in this case isn't required) - although the difference is negligable between the two:
stop();
this.onEnterFrame = function() {
      var bytes_loaded = Math.round(getBytesLoaded());
      var bytes_total = Math.round(getBytesTotal());
      var getPercent = bytes_loaded/bytes_total;
      _root.loadBar._yscale = getPercent*100;
      _root.loadTextMC.loadText = Math.round(getPercent*100)+"%....Loaded";
      _root.loadTextMC._y = _root.loadBar._y-_root.loadBar._height-20;
      if (bytes_loaded == bytes_total) {
            delete this.onEnterFrame;
            _root.gotoAndPlay(3);
      }
};

I though I gave you an A, but I hit an extra enter (2) times and closed my browser due to problems with my newly images machine (after brief outage due to windows conflicts) Is there a way to change it?

You can request it at community support.  I'm not unduly worried - just wondered - but it would be nice if you could change it ;-)
