    Help with a Preloader

    I'm wnating to build a preloader for my website, that shows a loading bar to display just how much data is still left to be loaded, but I don't have a clue how to start. Can someone give me detailed instructions, or point me to a good tutorial, to help me with this problem.

    Thanks,

    Mouse

    You should have a look at some tutorials, it'll help alot.

    Here is some of my code:

    PHP Code:
    onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
    loaded _root._level2.getBytesLoaded(); //the number of bytes that's already loaded
    total _root._level2.getBytesTotal(); //the total of bytes
    var percent
    percent 
    = (loaded/total)*100//generates the percent var
    showpercent Math.round(percent)+"%"//shows a percent and %
    this.preloadbalk._width = (this.preloaderbar._width/100)*percent//changes the width of your bar 
    if (percent == 100){ //if the var percent is equal to 100 this.nextFrame() will be executed
        
    this.nextFrame()
        }

    Hope it helps you...
