Loading Indication

I have several flash objects embedded in my menu like so:

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="images/movie.swf" width="440" height="140">
<param name="movie" value="images/movie.swf">

One takes several seconds to load .. is there anyway to show the user that this element is loading ?

thanks in advance.

The thing that you need to have will be preloaders

The logic is that the Flash will show the loading animation (must be small to ensure fast show up)
before entering the main movie

Actually there are numerous topics about preloader in here
You better do a search beforehand

And the latest topic about this is the following:
