Hello All:

I have created a photo gallery using the example given with-in MX.

My question is... Is there a way I can add a preloader to each of the jpg files that are being loaded in for those folks on a slow connection.

This is the script I am using for the gallery.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

//initialize variables and properties
square._alpha = 0;
whichPic = 1;
//initiate change to new image when buttons are clicked
next.onPress = function() {
if (whichPic<16 && !fadeIn && !fadeOut) {
fadeOut = true;
whichpic++;
input = whichPic;
}
};
back.onPress = function() {
if (whichPic>1 && !fadeIn && !fadeOut) {
fadeOut = true;
whichpic--;
input = whichPic;
}
};
_root.onEnterFrame = function() {
// when a new Photo is selected, fade out, load new image, and fade in
if (square._alpha>10 && fadeOut) {
square._alpha -= 10;
}
if (square._alpha<10) {
loadMovie("image"+whichPic+".jpg", "square");
fadeOut = false;
fadeIn = true;
}
if (square._alpha<100 && fadeIn && !fadeOut) {
square._alpha += 10;
} else {
fadeIn = false;
}
// limit input field
if (input>16) {
input = 16;
}
// initiate change to new image when Enter key is pressed
if (Key.isDown(Key.ENTER)) {
fadeOut = true;
whichpic = input;
}
};
// if a number is entered in the input field but Enter is not pressed, change
// back to current Photo number when clicking anywhere else
inputField.onKillFocus = function() {
input = whichPic;
};

-------------------------------------------------------------------


Thanks much for the help!
