Preloader whilst loading external .jpg

This is the script I use to load external .jpgs into a site
btn1.onRelease = function (){
loadMovie("Bike.jpg", _root.photo.empty);
_root.stick.gotoAndStop(80);
How would I create script so that it creates a sepaprate
preloader whilst each image is loading.

for something like this it's best to use the MovieClipLoader
class, rather than loadMovie() - doing so will allow you to use the
onLoadPrgress handler to update the preloader while it's being
loaded. it would go something like this:

  • Vista problem with loading external JPGs?

    I'm really pulling my hair out on this one. I did a quick
    flash piece for a preschool's web site and have tried several
    different Flash components inside of a larger FLA file that load
    external JPG files in a predefined area. With each component, I
    have received complaints (so far only from Vista users) that the
    user sees nothing in the area where photos are supposed to be
    loading. Instead they just see a white or black box.
    Is there any known issue with this? They can see everything
    else in the SWF file (the swinging girl and the text), but not any
    of the loaded JPG photos. Can anyone else out there with Vista tell
    me that they have the same problem? I'd like to track down what the
    common denominator is.
    I've asked two of the users to completely uninstall the Flash
    player and reinstall it, but to no avail. Deactivating Norton
    Antirvirus also didn't seem to do anything.
    Here is the URL:

    -- the flash item is the top banner.

    As Ned said the problem might be with the file structure on the server. Other problems may be with spelling. You computer may not be case sensitive to the names of the .swf files that you are loading, but your server might. So, on your computer when you are testing, second.swf is the same as Second.swf, or even second.SWF. But, on the server each of these variations is seen as a different file. Another problem is that when you are loading files from the same computer in testing, those files are close and so they load very quickly from your computer. When the files have to travel from the server, there will likely be a measurable period of time before the file is ready to be shown. This is particularly problematic with video that is embedded into an .swf. The whole file will need to be downloaded and uncompressed before it is available to play. If you stream the video as an external file, you can shorten the wait considerably.

  • Load external jpg

    I cannot load external jpg, they're not progresive.... the
    jpg files are inside a folder, and I write the next code:
    this.createEmptyMovieClip("mc", 100);
    mc.loadMovie("flash/photo1.jpg");
    but it doesn't work...
    Thanks

    use trace(mc) to confirm "this" refers to a movieclip, make
    sure there's nothing at a greater depth preventing you from seeing
    your image, double check your spelling of flash/photo1.jpg (and
    case counts) and make sure your html file is in a super folder of
    the flash folder, if you're testing in a browser.

  • Can you load external jpg files

    Is there a way to load external .jpg files on the fly or do
    they have to reside in the swf file?

    Hi Persons,
    macrofireball is correct as always, but I'll just add a
    thought to this thread because I suspect "rfull" isn't actually
    asking what he/she
    appears to be asking.
    No photo can ever be displayed "by itself". That is, image
    files are always "opened" in some sort of vehicle. It might be an
    image editor, or it might be a document like a *.DOC or a *.HTM ...
    but
    something must "contain" the image.
    So you can access a photo at any time you wish by putting it
    on a web page, then linking to the web page (for instance). Is
    something like that what you really had in mind?
    Have a good 'un folks!

  • As3 loaded external jpgs

    developing a ui in flash for photo gallery which I am loading
    into dreamweaver.
    using as3 in flash to load external photo files so not all
    having to download on opening.
    have had no problem in dreamweaver with swfs with embedded
    jpgs.
    ui comes up in dreamweaver but not external files. even
    though when I open swf movie or the flash created html of same
    file, on its own, no prob.
    anyone run across this problem, jpgs are in same file as
    flash media, also dropped them into image file just in case that
    might work---no go
    any ideas ?

    your isse begins here ..
    loadSection()
    you use the same loader to not only load files but you are tyring to use it to target the movieClip you also want to play.
    The issue is loader.  The loader can only reference one load at a time.. otherwise you screw up your listeners and the ability to unload files properly.
    You should load all files in Your current system as its own variable so that while one loads you can still control a movie.
    So what type of end transitions do your files have?
    What exactly with this seems like youre getting an issue.. looking at it looks alright aside from the fact that some methods are not used at all by your class

  • Need to load external jpgs at once

    I am using loadMovie to load all my external jpgs at once. On
    start I have thumbnails which animates, and using loadMovie load
    jpgs into that thumbnails. Offline it works fine, but online it
    only loads few jpgs first with animation and rest loads without
    animation just blink and loads. can you help me out for this.
    this is my sample page link:
    http://suewong.yourdemowebsite.com/editorial.htm

    Look at MovieClipLoader instead - images take time to load.
    You have to wait
    until your files have loaded before trying to use them - MCL
    is best for
    that, with its onLoadInit method.

  • Loading external JPGs

    I'm building a generic slideshow. The slideshow displays NINE
    buttons. Each button, when clicked, will load a corresponding
    external JPG. For example, if I click BUTTON THREE then JPG THREE
    is loaded. BUTTON TWO loads JPG TWO, etc.. I'm looking for a way to
    "recognize" if there are FEWER available JPGs than the NINE BUTTONS
    in my slideshow. For example, if I have just FIVE JPGs available
    and I click on button number SEVEN, I want nothing to happen. At
    the moment I get an error message that JPG SEVEN does not
    exist.

    that error message won't be seen outside the authoring
    environment. once you publish, pressing button 7 will result in
    nothing happening.

  • [Q] duplicating movieclip with loaded external jpg file

    Hi, Im trying to make thumbnail and enlarged picture by
    duplication.
    What i tried was using duplication of thumbnail movieclip
    which jpg image is loaded
    However it seems not working as i intended,so I had to make
    empty movieclip and loaded image again!!!
    I am concerning that if I use new movieclip and loading the
    image again..it means users have to download the same image twice.
    Basically, I am trying to make a list of thumbnailed images
    with enlarged picture popes up when mouse rolls over them
    Is there any proper way to make it happen?
    or duplication just doesnt work even thou movieclip is
    already loaded with image?
    Thank you for your time~

    > simple create your movieclip. Now create an empty clip

    No, that will not work
    You are partly right - if you create a nested clip and assign
    properties
    (such as an onPress handler) to the parent clip, you can then
    load content
    into the child without overwriting the parent's properties.
    If you load an
    image into the child and then duplicate the parent however,
    the image in the
    child clip *will not be duplicated*. Try it.

    Again, partly right. Lets take it bit by bit:
    > yes the user will have to
    > load it again, but it is already in the Browser Cache
    The movie will have to load it again, but will probably load
    it from cache.
    > Bad side is more that you will doble
    > the bandwidth of the images loading on your site.
    Not so. If it's in the cache, it doesn't use any bandwidth at
    all - that's
    what caching means! A copy of the image is saved on the
    user's local hard
    drive, so no bandwidth needs to be used when loading from
    cache.
    Basically, for the *majority* of users, loaded images will be
    cached (this
    is dependent on browser settings, but most users will have
    their browsers
    set to cache). This means that after the first load,
    subsequent loads of the
    same image will be quick and carry no bandwidth overheads.
    The real issue here is that dynamic content in movieClips,
    such as loaded
    images, swfs, or graphics created with the drawing API will
    not duplicate
    when the clip is duplicated/ The accepted work around used to
    be simply to
    reload the aimge. Now with Flash 8 though you can use the
    BitmapData class
    to grab a copy of the image and redraw it to the newly
    created clip if you
    so wish.

  • Loading external .jpgs or .swfs on different layers

    Hi all. Hope someone can help me. How do I get an external
    file I upload onto a website through a movieClip instance, to load
    behind certain stuff. For instance: I have drop-up and drop-down
    menus and want the file thats uploaded to load behind that specific
    layer. Do I use code like "send to back", and what would the code
    be? I am attaching my currant code so that you can tell me what to
    add, and where. Thanks.

    create a new layer that is under the layer of your 'certain
    stuff'. then create a new symbol, Movie Clip, and drag an instance
    of it from the library to the stage on to the newly created layer..
    then give that movie clip an instance name of holder_mc. and take
    out
    var holder_mc = this.createEmptyMovieClip("holder_mc",
    this.getNextHighestDepth());
    from the code

  • Preloader and Loading External Flash issue

    Source File:
    http://cratle7.googlepages.com/loader.fla
    View Swf File:
    http://cratle7.googlepages.com/loader.html
    I need to start an ad from Mochiads in the first frame and
    then load a game in the second frame.
    The current issues are:
    1. After loading the ads, the movie runs into infinite loop,
    not going to the second frame even if I use the following for the
    first keyFrame:
    MochiAd.showPreGameAd({id:"a87e30e0c9917e13",
    res:"314x224"});
    gotoAndPlay("load");
    "load" is the label for second frame.
    2. The game loaded into the swf file has problem with its
    preloader. Basically it runs forever without an ending.It is
    running in infinite loop while the original swf being loaded is
    working properly if I access its url alone.
    The problem can be seen at

  • Flash MX Preloader for external JPGs

    Hey all! Any help would be greatly appreciated. In all
    honesty, I have searched and studied and worked to get this myself,
    which I do alot with code, etc. BUT I am going to admit I'm a "make
    it pretty on the outside" kind of guy, and coding makes my eyeballs
    fall out and well, honestly, I just don't get it. My brain can not
    wrap itself around this. Sigh! So I could use your help a little.
    This is what I'm wanting to do. I have a website,
    www.luxeillustrato.com, and if you go to the portfolio area, and
    click on any of the sections (take fine art for example); it will
    showcase my works by loading external jpg files each time you click
    the forward arrow button.
    You can see I have preloaders on the site, that work fine. My
    main page has a movie target with the instance name of photoM. You
    click "artist", and it loads a new swf file into the photoM target.
    IF you click on "portfolio", "fine art", it loads the fine art swf
    file into photoM, using a preloader. THEN, if you click on the
    forward arrow button, a new jpg image of my work is loaded into the
    fine art movie target with the instance name of just
    photo. As you can see, you have to wait until the jpg image
    loads (and you start to wonder if it's doing anything.)
    The problem is, it is not preloading the external jpgs, it's
    just preloading the fine art swf. My preload code is currently:
    stop();
    onEnterFrame = function () {
    totalBytes = _parent.getBytesTotal();
    loadedBytes = _parent.getBytesLoaded();
    percent = Math.ceil((loadedBytes/totalBytes)*100);
    gotoAndStop(percent);
    info_txt.text = percent+" %";
    if (percent>=100) {
    _parent.gotoAndPlay("inter");
    I already have the preload animation bar created (as you can
    see on the site.) What do I need to do to alter the code above (or
    replace it) in order to have the external jpgs be preloaded as
    well? For example's sake, let's just say I have four jpgs, titled
    "door.jpg", "orange.jpg", "boyfriend.jpg", and "untitled.jpg" (in
    case these are needed for the code. They may not be.)
    I hope this is easy to understand. If NOT, just tell me. I'll
    simplify. And seriously, thanks!

    put a stop() on the first frame of your external swf in an otherwise empty first frame.  when preloading is complete apply a play() to your loader's content cast as a movieclip:
    function contentLoaded(evt:Event):void {
        //Optionally change to a clip holder and set progressbar visibility.
        addChild(contentLoader);
    MovieClip(contentLoader.content).play();

  • Preload External Jpgs

    What is the easiest way to preload external jpgs? The client
    wants to update these frequently so they should be external, but I
    want them to show up instantly like the rest of the site once the
    preloading is done.
    Any advice? I had thought about loading them into the
    preloader (at 0% alpha), so that they'd be loaded into the cache
    during preload, so that when the home page comes up, they'd be all
    ready to go? But if it's a different instance of the movieclip,
    will it reload the jpg? Or any time i use that external jpg in the
    flash file will it already be in the cache?
    Thanks. I've heard a few different things and would love your
    advice.
    Jeremy

    There are two different things here. pre-caching (I don't
    know what else to call it) and pre-loading.
    It is possible to pre-cache files off the same server. If you
    load into different instances then it should get it from the cache,
    so yes that would speed things up. But... results are dependent on
    an unknown factor: the user's cache settings. If its set to never
    cache you could end up downloading 'to the cache' and just wasting
    bandwidth.
    You can read about that approach here.
    http://www.actionscript.com/Article/tabid/54/ArticleID/Preloading-Files-into-the-Browser-s -Cache/Default.aspx
    Then there's the regular preload approach where you preload
    into movieclips (perhaps with ._visible=false or 0% ._alpha etc).
    You can find a lot of info relevant to that here:

  • Load a  external jpg in BitmapData

    Hello Everybody,
    I search a way to load a external jpg from my server in my
    swf to use
    it with the BitmapData-Class.
    The Method loadBitmap only works with images from my internal
    library.
    What do you think is the best way to solve this problem.
    For me it seems to be a little bit stupid to load the image
    in a MovieClip.
    Then Scan the Mc to write it in a BitmapData-Object.
    To Filter it. And then write it back to an MC.
    Do you know a way, where I can load it directly to and
    BitmapData-Object
    like this:
    1) load Image in BitmapData-Object
    2) Filter - Image
    3) attachBitmap to MovieClip
    I am a noob with Flash 8 and my english is very bad.
