Subject: FLASH: --HELP-- Flash 5 FrameLoader Test NOT Working
From: Dan
Date: Fri, 1 Dec 2000 06:19:47 GMT


I would like to put a loading sequence at the
beginning of a move.... not too complex - right?

The intent - as in all loading sequences - is to
inform the user that the movie is loading into memory.
And - in this case - tell them of the progress of the

I have used such sequences before... but only in Flash
4. For some reason I am not having any luck with Flash

Here is what happens when I load the movie.

The movie appears blank as it loads for the first
time... then for a split second I see my "loader"
movie clip... then the movie progresses to the next
scene, which is the beginning of my movie.

If I had to guess it would seem as if the frame
loading test isn't even being looked at until the
movie is fully loaded and by then it passes the test
and proceeds to the next scene.

I have The flash 5 plugin installed, so I know it's
not that. Also tested on Mac/PC... so I've ruled that
out as well.

I am framiluar with frame loading as I mentioned...
and I am using the "framesloaded" Var as recommended
on Flash's website.

In fact... the "if frame is loaded" sample movie that
was in the "help" pull down of Flash 4 is mysteriously
gone in version 5... is there some issue
(compatibility) that I am missing?

FYI... this is the current code that I am using in my
1st frame of my movie.

if (_framesloaded>=_totalframes) {
nextScene ();
} else {
setProperty ("/loader", _xscale, "(_framesloaded /

What am I doing wrong?
What can I do to correct this problem?

Any suggestions would be appreciated
