    Content loading timer (2002)

    Hi,

    I've got website that contain various photo collections that are build into a slideshow presentation in Flash 8. After building them in Flash, I place them in my frontpage form which works fine for files that load right away due to being small in size. I would like to create a situation where there is an hour glass or some such thing with a comment that lets the viewer know the page is loading. I can't seem to find how to do that in either Flash or Frontpage.

    Thanks!

    Hi Leesha

    This looks like a nice little widget......It appears to create the code required to produce a Flash Status Bar....know nothing more bout it, but it looks a goer

    Hi!

    I tried the link you gave me but it wasn't quite what I needed. I did find out that the "thing" I wanted is called a preloader and found a great tutorial on how to do it. It's at the following site. I know there is a way that I'm supposed to type this in so its a clickable link but for the life of me can't find my cheat sheet, so please forgive me!
