Hey Folks!

I want to have as my pre-loading animation a bar graph that displays the percentage of the total presentation that's has been loaded. I'm using Flash 5. An example would be like what you see with kempdental.com at http://www.kempdental.com/.

What do you think?

If you have an instance of pBar, just a rectangle, you can use the ._xscale to resize the bar by a percentage. Also you can use a dynamic text box to display the percentage.

iBytesTotal = _root.getBytesTotal();
iBytesLoaded = _root.getBytesLoaded();
iBytes = (iBytesLoaded/iBytesTotal)*100;

_root.pBar._xscale=iBytes;
sStatus=Math.floor(iBytes) add "%";

I have been working on this progress bar for quite a bit. It works, however, anything from the library with linkage and 'export in first frame' checked, downloads before the progress bar appears.
